90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

($100-$140) Dark red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, dark plum, tobacco, graphite, minerals and flowers. Very suave and smooth on entry, then a bit closed in the middle palate. But this very young, firm Palmer boasts harmonious acidity, very good cut and excellent balance. Finishes with rather tight tannins that will need six or seven years to soften. (I was not able to taste the 2002 Palmer, which was being fined; Delfaut described it as more powerful and concentrated than the 2001.)
