Tasting Notes For Chateau Palmer Margaux 2018

Chateau Palmer Margaux 2018 presents an exquisite bouquet, rich with the aromas of ripe dark berries, black cherries, and cassis, interwoven with hints of violets and subtle earthy undertones. On the palate, it reveals a profound depth, showcasing velvety tannins and a full-bodied structure. The flavors are complex and layered, featuring a harmonious blend of blackcurrant, plum, and blueberry, accented by notes of cedar, tobacco, and dark chocolate. The wine's acidity is well-balanced, contributing to a remarkably long, elegant finish with a lingering touch of spice and minerality. This vintage demonstrates both power and finesse, promising great aging potential.

Critic Ratings

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 99:
This dense wine is almost black in color. Offering tannins and luscious black fruits, it is ripe with both structure and richness. The concentration and thought-provoking intensity are impressive. Drink this wine from 2028. Organic and biodynamic. Cellar Selection

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 99:
The 2018 Palmer is composed of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Grapes were harvested September 13 to October 15, and the wine has a 3.83 pH and 14.3% alcohol. Very deep purple-black in color, the nose is a little reticent to begin, but with coaxing, it slowly emerges to show fragrant violets, underbrush, mossy bark and iron ore with exponentially growing notions of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, plum preserves, hoisin, Christmas cake and red roses with wafts of dusty earth, Indian spices and cracked black pepper. Full-bodied, concentrated and downright powerful in the mouth, it has a solid structure of firm, wonderfully plush tannins and masses of fragrant accents, finishing very long and very spicy. By the time I finished tasting this, the nose had exploded in this fragrant bomb of fruit, earth and floral notions. This is one of those 2018 wines that has a beguiling brightness that comes from the many floral, spice and mineral accents among all that rich fruit. WOW!

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 99:
While there's not much to go around, the 2018 Château Palmer is unquestionably a stunning bottle of wine. I certainly can't think of another Palmer coming close to this level of concentration (maybe the 2010 comes closest?). This blockbuster boasts a dense purple hue as well as a primordial bouquet of black cherries, mulberries, and blackberries intermixed with freshly crushed rocks, smoke tobacco, gravelly earth, lead pencil shavings, and burning embers. With full-bodied richness, a dense, stacked mid-palate, mouth coating tannin's, and a blockbuster of a finish, it's going to need 10-15 years to hit maturity, and as I wrote last year, will live for just about forever.
