The intense, ruby coloured Chateau Palmer 2007 is forward and expressive, with really pleasant yet rich fruit aromas (essentially raspberry and currant), along with vanilla notes: expressions from the ageing barrels. Refreshing, sharp with round, pleasant tannins, Palmer 2007 charms with fruits. Although not easily approached, this Margaux remains accessible without conceding its balance due to the vintage year effect. The freshness of this wine is particularly enjoyable and the finish graceful: a true success from a demanding vintage year.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Palmer has an opulent bouquet for the vintage, something almost Mediterranean tincturing the lifted red berry fruit laced with sage and even a suggestion of oregano. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, a fine bead of acidity, gentle and caressing but with a powerful, almost heady finish. If you are looking for an extravagant wine this vintage, then Palmer is the place to come, though maybe it has just dispensed a little of its luster since I last tasted it. Tasted February 2017.
