Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Palmer 3eme Cru 2005


Lobenberg: Schwarz, fast undurchdringlich. Sehr reife Nase, aber nicht überreif. In erster Linie Schokolade, dunkle Früchte, viel Brombeere. Süß. Im Mund enorme Fruchtfülle schwarzer Früchte mit Teer und Schoko und sehr viel Biss, Rasse und Klasse. Der Wein hat sowohl die Feinheit des Jahrgangs und die Rasse, aber auch ungeheuren Bumms. Auch dieser Wein zeigt die m.E. hervorragende Stellung der Appellation Margaux in diesem Jahr. Fast sensationell. Dieses Jahr ist der optimale Kompromiss für Palmer. Die Wucht und das Volumen, die er schon so häufig gezeigt hat, aber auch die Rasse und die Feinheit, die Überreife und doch die Frische. Exceptionell. 97-100/100


Jane Anson über: Chateau Palmer 3eme Cru

-- Jane Anson: Enticing ruby red body, with aromatics that show a touch of orange zest and turmeric spice. The fruit is creamy, intense, a brilliant Palmer that has finesse and balance but a serious kick. Black pepper, cinammon, raspberry, bilberry fruits, smoked earth and campfire on the finish, so juicy, totally salivating with a slate-textured close of play. Delicious, and a great sign that the 2005 vintage is starting to swing open. Harvest September 22 to October 7, 60% new oak. A long dry summer, with 57% less rainfall than usual, although temperatures never climbed as high as in 2003. Impossible to stop smiling after this. 100/100


Parker über: Chateau Palmer 3eme Cru

-- Parker: Its bigger sister, the 2005 Château Palmer (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot), is one of the great efforts of this superlative vintage. Floral notes mixed with blackberry, cassis, plum, licorice and spring flowers soar from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. It is medium to full-bodied, surprisingly opulent (it has a big percentage of Merlot), long, multi-dimensional and textured. This wonderfully pure, stunning wine once again performs as a first-growth. It should drink well for the next 20-25 years. 98/100


Decanter über: Chateau Palmer 3eme Cru

-- Decanter: The 2005 was the first vintage where Thomas Duroux was in charge from beginning to end, having worked alongside his predecessor Bertrand Bouteiller on most of the 2004. Another great vintage in this all-star line-up, and the one that perhaps had the most exuberant sunny expression in the early years, although now at 15 years of age the tertiary aromatics are just starting to arrive, along with hints of earthiness and a savoury cassis fruit character as the Cabernet Sauvignon continues to dominate. There is a gentle truffled edging to the colour also, but the tannic frame is very much in play, and still cradling the fruit. A great wine that walks the tightrope between young and old Palmer, and between the welcome of a generous vintage and the natural elegance of a great Palmer. Harvest September 22 to October 7. Drinking Window 2020 - 2045. 97/100


Wine Spectator über: Chateau Palmer 3eme Cru

-- Wine Spectator: Opulent and flamboyant are the two words that come to mind with this wine. Aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big, chewy tannins (yet they are refined and silky) and a long, long finish. This is a full-throttle Palmer. Superripe and delicious. 95-98/100

Mein Winzer


Obwohl Chateau Palmer offiziell nur ein 3eme Cru ist, liegt er qualitativ oft weit darüber. Besonders bekannt ist er für sein extrem duftiges Bouquet, das ihn bereits in der Nase unverkennbar macht. Mit 40 % ist der Anteil an Merlottrauben im Verschnitt für einen Margaux relativ hoch, das mag ihm...
