"Palmer can be as profound as many first growths, and in vintages such as ... 1995, 2001, 2004 and 2005, it can be better than many of them.

"The style of Palmer is one of sensational fragrance and bouquet, so much so that great vintages can be identified in blind tastings by their smell alone. The wine's texture is rich, often supple and lush, and the flavour is always deeply fruity and concentrated. Recent vintages have been formidable efforts...

"Perfect weather lasted throughout the year and through the harvest. After three months of sunshine and high temperatures in June, July and August, some rain and cooler weather came in September, although this was in no way harmful to the crop. By the time picking began, the weather was fine again; the grapes had reached optimum maturity and were in perfect condition.

"The wines from the 1995 vintage are remarkable for their rich, tannic structure without a trace of astringency."

94 This is one of the best Palmers of the decade. The nose is generous with raspberry, strawberry and that touch of lemongrass noted on previous occasions. The palate is full-bodied and precocious, fleshy, lots of stuffing and rounded in texture. Good depth with a savoury second half, nice grippy tannins with raspberry and cooked meats towards the finish. On this showing the wine could actually benefit from further bottle ageing, but this remains a 'solid' long-term Palmer. Impressive, but pleasure will come later.

94 Big and powerful, with loads of fruit and chewy tannins. Still just a baby. Full bodied, with lots of structure and a long, long finish. Give it time. — '95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010.
