Lovely violet-tinted garnet colour, Chateau Palmer 2008 exhibits fruity and floral notes on an otherwise gentle nose. Aeration reveals forward, rich red fruits. The vintage distinctive freshness and delicate aromas were preserved in this Margaux. Round and fleshy body, rich fruits, and well-built tannins belie the natural freshness (acidity) found in the attack. The expected fragrances and soft tannins are inherent to this vintage which also offers decent length on the finish. Chateau Palmer 2008 is as enjoyable straight way as it will be in a decade or so.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A stunning success for the vintage, and possibly the Margaux of the year, this wine, which achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, is a blend of 51% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot. Loads of barbecue smoke, licorice, incense, blackberry, new saddle leather and forest floor notes jump from the glass of this dense, purple-colored wine. Extraordinarily intense and full-bodied, with plenty of tannin, but not the formidable structure of the 2010, this is going to be one of the longest-lived wines of 2008. It is full, rich, layered, and should be reasonably approachable with 3-4 years of bottle age, and will also keep for 30+ years.
