Tasting Notes

Vinous – 90/100

The 2013 Palmer has a pleasant bouquet and fine delineation, lacks a little fruit, is slightly earthy and missing the voluptuous qualities that one usually associates with Palmer. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, pleasant red cherries and wild strawberry fruit. It’s elegant and poised with a lilting finish. Certainly, this is one of the best wines on the Left Bank in this challenging vintage. Tasted at 67 Pall Mall. [Neal Martin, 31/08/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2030

JancisRobinson.com – 15.5

Tasted blind. Deep garnet. Inviting mix of dark fruit and restrained oak on the nose. But the acidity and the tannins combine to be rather harsh on the palate. Tough finish. (JH) [27/01/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2030

Robert Parker – 88

The use of new oak was also cut back in order to emphasize the fruit aspects of the wine. Consequently, the 2013 Palmer is an easygoing, fruit-forward, fresh, pure wine with no vegetal characteristics or astringent tannins. This opaque purple-colored, medium-bodied, plush 2013 preserves some of its Margaux typicity even in this tough vintage. Drink it over the next decade. Palmer’s administrator, Thomas Duroux, realized that 2013 was going to be a year requiring huge amounts of labor and a draconian-like selection. Only 3,800 cases of 2013 Palmer were produced from a blend of 49% Merlot and 51% Cabernet Sauvignon. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 28/08/2014]

Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024
