    December 30, 2020 - Very fun Margaux night - '86 Pavillon vs '00 Palmer. 4hrs of decanting for the latter before dinner and could have even used more air! Both bottles were great although the Pavillon is just a touch past peak and the Palmer needs some more time. That said, both were still enjoyable!

    December 27, 2020 - The 2000 Palmer is shaping up nicely with impressive concentration to its rich dark fruit and tobacco profile. Requiring several hours in the decanter to completely reveal its personality, with enough air this unfurls in the glass with softening tannins and a supple texture framing dark fruit flavors that offer good persistence. Very good. Drink now through 2035.

    December 26, 2020 - Have this for Xmas dinner and what can I say. It’s like the boss. Close and shut out at the start. Little herb, spice and floral note with little depth. U must be really patient with this. At the 3 hour mark, it blossomed into an incredible sophisticated power house with fitnese and total structure control. The swirl in the mouth brings out indescribable intensity and different notes that keep hitting u. The finish is superbly long. Even after the final drops, I can still it improving. Many many more years to go. Don’t waste it by opening it now. Lovely.

    December 24, 2020 - Used Coravin to see where we are as part of this Corona Christmas... Reassuring to have good wine. Powerful yet refined, this Chateau Palmer 2000, whose colour is youthful still, for the nearly 20 year mark. The bouquet, rather regal, strikes a balance between burgeoning tertiary - hints of wet earth, touches of saddle leather, touches of truffle - and wet stone freshness along with the the bright red and black fruit and fresh white flower nature of youth. Oh there is tannic power too! Not yet all melted. Needs another 20 years for that. For those who like youthfulness, but with some cellar complexity, the 2000 is in a (very) sweet spot now. An enveloping palate but never overbearing or heavy. Indeed you get palate juiciness and density, smooth but with contours leading to a long finish that echoes forest freshness with bright lifting energy. The finish still has a somewhat foreboding aspect from pleasingly unresolved tannin. Superb!
