Château Palmer Margaux 2010

Discover this Margaux 2010


In a neat twist of French-British rivalry, this estate was named for a British officer, Major General Palmer, who established ties to Bordeaux by immigrating there in 1814. One of the top estates in the touted appellation of Margaux, Palmer sits at 3rd Growth level, but is often considered equal amongst 1st Growth producers, due to the inherent quality of the wines. The higher Merlot content (54%) is unusual for the appellation, but a calling card of the estate - Cabernet Sauvignon makes up another 40% of the blend, with Petit Verdot the remaining component. This 2010 release is exceptional for concentration, precision and vitality.

Margaux 2010 is by Château Palmer. It has a critic score of 98 out of 100 based on an aggregation of ratings from our partner sites. This 2010 vintage is available in 750ml volume.

Blended Red Wines

Blended Red refers to red wines made from a combination of different grape varieties. These blends can vary widely in style and flavor profile, depending on the grapes used and the winemaking techniques employed. The ABV for blended red wines typically ranges from 12-15%. They are popular for their complexity and the winemaker's ability to create a balanced and harmonious wine.

Blended red wines are common in many wine regions, with notable examples including Bordeaux blends, Rhone blends, and New World blends from regions like California and Australia. The art of blending allows winemakers to enhance the strengths of each grape variety, creating wines with greater depth and character. The flexibility and creativity involved in producing blended red wines make them a favorite among both winemakers and consumers, offering a wide range of styles to suit different tastes.

Critical Acclaim

The 2010 Palmer is one of the superstars of the vintage, a blend of 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, which is just slightly different than what I indicated two years ago. The alcohol level hit 14.5%, and the wine comes across like a more stacked-and-packed version of their 2000. It is tannic and backward, but has a sensational black/purple color and a gorgeous nose of camphor, barbecue smoke, blackberry and cassis. Full-bodied, with oodles of glycerin but a relatively healthy pH, this wine has a precision and freshness that belie its lofty alcohol and extravagant concentration. This is a sensationally rich, full-throttle Palmer that could well end up being one of the all-time great wines made at this estate. It needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 50 or more years. There's no question that Thomas Duroux and the staff at Palmer are producing wines of first-growth quality, and have been for nearly a decade. The Wine Advocate 205
