Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

98pts - Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Palmer delivers a beguiling array of black fruit—warm plums, cassis and black cherry compote—with kirsch and wild sage sparks plus profound suggestions of fragrant earth, black truffles, iron ore and liquid licorice. Full-bodied, rich and decadently seductive in the mouth, the generous fruit is superbly framed with plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 2019

97 pts - 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.

The 2009 Palmer has a rich, opulent and ravishing bouquet with precocious kirsch and boysenberry aromas, blue fruit exploding in the glass with aeration. This still feels very backward. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity. Superb mineral tension with great precision towards the finish. Thomas Duroux crafted a superlative Palmer in 2009, one of the finest in recent years. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. -, March 2019

Michael Schuster

[41CS/52M/7PV] Dense, mineral and freshly ripe blackcurrant nose; what a balance: rich, 'pulpily' gently fleshy wine with a wonderfully flattering silky Merlot texture, superbly elegant concentration, imperceptibly fresh definition, and superfine tannins; rich yet restrained, deep, sweet, long, pure, beautifully fruit cored thoroughbred feel, so easy yet so complete; a complex chord, with a wonderful range of harmonics; the perfect image of Palmer; effortless gentle density, real Cab presence on the finish, freshly ripe blackcurrant, gently spicy with a superb fruit and gentle aromatic spice persistence. Difficult to think of a finer Palmer since 61! An outstanding performance, and undoubted starof the vintage. Hope they don't use too much oak on that fabulous texture! 2018-40
