Neal Martin Vinous May 2021

The 2020 Palmer, which was matured in 65% new oak, possesses one of the most perfumed bouquets of the vintage with entrancing, seductive scents of black cherries, wild strawberry, iodine and crushed violets, all beautifully delineated (as per usual). The palate is medium-bodied with fine but quite firm tannins, lending this Palmer more backbone than presupposed. Blackberry, graphite and touches of liquorice develop with aeration that build towards an assertive, pencil box-tinged finish that nods towards Pauillac. This is a Palmer destined for long-term ageing, so readers should have a cool damp cellar handy. It is a serious Palmer, very different from the previous two vintages, not a mix of the two, but content in just being itself. 14.1% alcohol.

THOMAS DUROUX, DIRECTOR OF CHÂTEAU PALMER

“If I had to remember one thing from the 2020 vintage, it would definitely be the way our wines were blended. The Merlots were rich and juicy, the Cabernets strong and powerful. The blends were so obvious. For the first time, and after seventeen vintages at the property, my team and I were able to complete Alter Ego and Cha­teau Palmer in November. The Terroir or the identity of all our different plots spoke by itself.”
