Ch. Palmer (0.75 L)
NM: This is one of the best Palmerí»s of the decade. The nose is generous with raspberry, strawberry and that touch of lemongrass noted on previous occasions. The palate is full-bodied and precocious, fleshy, lots of stuffing and rounded in texture. Good depth with a savoury second half, nice grippy tannins with a raspberry and cooked meats towards the finish. On this showing the wine could actually benefit from further bottle ageing, but this remains a í solidí€ long-term Palmer. Impressive, but pleasure will come later. Drink 2010-2020+ Tasted March 2008.
