Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, August 1993, Score: 87

The 1988 offers a promising bouquet of ripe plums, dense, rich, concentrated fruit, and medium body, but I was surprised by the relatively compact finish. Nevertheless, this is one of the best wines of the Margaux appellation in 1988. Drink 1994 - 2006

Producer

Château Palmer

Château Palmer has many followers. Indeed in certain vintages it even rivals Château Margaux itself. Its 1961 was one of the most compelling wines of the vintage outperforming most first growths. Many deem this château far more noble than its original classified third growth status which can be confirmed by its price.

Region

Margaux, Red Bordeaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
