One of the unique, if not slightly strange, characteristics of Palmer is that it tends to produce top wines in those vintages no one else does: Vintages like 1983 and 1999 are excellent examples of that. 2004 is a year like that as well: Palmer has produced a beautiful wine in 2004. And because this vintage was average for Bordeaux as a whole the Palmer 2004 is still affordable!

This stunning wine is one of the vintage’s great successes. Administrator Thomas Duroux has fashioned a modern day version of Palmer’s brilliant 1966. Displaying a rare combination of power and elegance, this dense purple-colored offering exhibits notes of blackberries, truffles, flowers, incense, and camphor. Long, classic, and medium to full-bodied with stunning texture and richness, this superb effort is a candidate for the finest Margaux of the vintage.
