Tasting Notes and Scores
One of the Medocs most successful 1978s, this wine has reached full maturity, but it reveals no signs of an early demise. The color is a dark ruby/garnet with only slight amber at the edge. The nose offers up black truffle, cassis, smoked herbs, and meaty aromas. In the mouth, there is a green pepper quality to the rich, sweet fruit. This medium-bodied, silky-textured wine is more spice-driven than most Palmers, but attractive and mouthfilling. Anticipated maturity: Now-2006. Last tasted 10/97
Tasted at an off-line lunch at The Ledbury. A superb showing for Palmer. A lovely, leafy, rather austere nose paradigmatic of the vintage, with the Cabernet Sauvignon firmly in the driving seat: hints of leather, Asian spice and the scent of “dusty attic” developing with time. None of those Margaux violets here! The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and vibrant with fine acidity. This is old school Palmer, stately and conservative, unassuming and yet persuasive with its natural, effortless balance. This bottle is as good as you will find this wine. Drink now-2020. Tasted October 2009.
