Tasting Notes

A blend of 52 percent Merlot, 41 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 7 percent Petit Verdot, this wine is just amazingly seductive - It’s a wine that plays to the heart rather than the head and it was one of the most immediately delicious wines of the whole vintage - The tannins seem to hide away in the core of plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours, but don't be fooled, this is a hugely structured wine and will benefit from long term cellaring. James Griswood - Wine Buyer

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

18.5/20 Jancis Robinson

In the press...

One of the all-time great Palmers (along with the 1961, 1966, 1970, 1989, 2000 and 2005), the 2009 Palmer is a blend of 52% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and a whopping 7% Petit Verdot that came in at close to 14% natural alcohol - An opaque blue/black color suggests a wine with thrilling levels of concentration and intensity, and That's exactly what a taster gets - Subtle smoke, incense and Asian spice (soy?) notes interwoven with graphite, blueberry, blackberry and cassis characteristics lead to a full-bodied, phenomenally concentrated, viscous, opulent wine with plenty of sweet tannin - This sensational Palmer reveals even more floral notes than vintages such as 2005 and 2000 - It should drink well for 50 years.

Regional info

Margaux is a one of the key appellations in the Haut-Medoc district of Bordeaux on the left bank of the Gironde. Geographically speaking, it is the largest appellation in the Medoc. Whilst in Saint-Julien, Saint-Estephe and Pauillac, the vineyards belonging to each chateau, even to the wealthiest, are often dispersed and mixed in with those of their rivals. As a result, the claim of any one estate to have a monopoly on the best terroir is diluted and the skill of the winemaker is all the more important to create the best wine. The terroir of Margaux has a particularly gravel content (Pauillac and Saint-Estephe have slightly more clay) and this lends Margaux's wines famous lightness of style which, in skilled hands, is seductively elegant.
