The use of new oak was also cut back in order to emphasize the fruit aspects of the wine. Consequently, the 2013 Palmer is an easygoing, fruit-forward, fresh, pure wine with no vegetal characteristics or astringent tannins. This opaque purple-colored, medium-bodied, plush 2013 preserves some of its Margaux typicity even in this tough vintage. Drink it over the next decade. Palmer’s administrator, Thomas Duroux, realized that 2013 was going to be a year requiring huge amounts of labor and a draconian-like selection. Only 3,800 cases of 2013 Palmer were produced from a blend of 49% Merlot and 51% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Shows good energy, with a brambly undertow beneath the dark plum, cassis and blackberry compote flavors. The finish is lined with juniper and tobacco notes, all backed by good grip. More vivacious yet less refined than the 2013 Margaux, yet still a really nice effort. Best from 2018 through 2025. 3,800 cases made.
James Suckling - 93 See more...
Extremely perfumed and floral with hints of currants. Full body, firm and silky. Pretty fruit and finish. Bright and firm too. Milk chocolate on the finish. Drink in 2018 but already joyful.
Wine Enthusiast - 94 See more...
Very well balanced, this is already a beautiful wine that could almost be drunk now. Smooth tannins and oak are layered with red and black-currant fruits that are perfumed and fresh. The structure is all there, just light and fragrant. Drink now, although the wine will fill out from 2022.
