CLARET from a Private Cellar

Château Palmer vintage 2001
Margaux, 3ème Cru Classé

93/100 points, Lisa Perotti-Brown, in Asia May 2009

Lying in a temperature-controlled cellar duty & tax free in Hong-Kong
6 bottles in original wooden case

Tasting Note: "Medium-garnet colour. The nose is still very youthful with notes of ripe cassis, dark cherries, cloves, graphite, a touch of cedar and a little mint. The medium bodied, well structured palate gives medium-firm tannins, medium+ acidity with a good balance of plump, spicy fruit. The oak needs a little more time to marry and tannins are a little on the firm side but otherwise approachable now. Long finish. Drink now – 2025. Tasted February 2009."
