    May 29, 2019 - Chateau Palmer Masterclass (The Wine Emporium, Wine Education Centre): Palmer Masterclass, The Wine Emporium, Brisbane. The 2010 is a deep and dark crimson colour with a subdued nose that with coaxing reveals a similar striking elegance and complexity as seen in the 05 with blackcurrants, dark cherries, blueberries, dark chocolate and violets and a cedar spicy touch. The palate is quite strict and restrained yet the rich texture and persistent fruit that continues right through into the persistent finish again suggests the 05. This a beautiful wine with a long future ahead - an 05, 09, 10 dinner in 10 years should be a treat !

    April 13, 2019 - Double decanted for two hours then consumed over a further three. Still very young and <slaps self on back of hand> pretty much vinfanticide. Quite monolithic with plenty of brooding and slightly baked black fruits backed by plain chocolate & vanilla custard. Tannins are silky and long and there is plenty of glycerol thickness here as well. It felt a little overdone on this occasion for me even when paired with a big, bloody roasted standing rib and charry vegetables...

    June 16, 2018 - During a walkabout tasting, only brief impressions. Soft and chocolatey, the warmth and extraction of this hot vintage was visible. I felt this was a bit overdone. Would stick to more classical vintages like the superb 2005.

    (Chateau Palmer (Margaux)) The blend this year is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 54% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot; this has to be the highest Merlot percentage in the appellation, and indeed the highest in all the major left bank communes I think. It is even an increase on the 2009, which was 52% Merlot. The alcohol is an chest-beating 14.5%, the pH 3.65. In the glass this has a dark hue, certainly more concentrated at the rim than Alter Ego. It has a slightly warmer fruit profile here on the nose, reflecting the prodigious concentration of Merlot I think, although still with a rather dark and defined fruit character. Despite this first impression it has a very linear style on the palate, full of vigour, direct and composed. Rather sinewy and structured in fact. There is a grainy-crunchy quality to the tannins and the acidity is fresh, underpinning the admirable concentration of fruit, which is very refined in terms of style, but with a lifted and rather floral presence. On the finish a very attractive polished coat of tannins. Overall this is supple, but very tannic, and I like it very much, but I do think the rather soft-focus aromatic profile keeps this from any pretence of perfection.
