Chateaux Ferriere et Palmer 2001

89 points

Margaux. 12.5%

Both consumed together over 2 days.

Ferriere is very attractive but not in the same league as the 2000, less energy and intensity of flavour.

Palmer is marked by obvious but not heavy marcaptan. It’s a rich soft Burgundian style which I believe is not untypical of Palmer.

Palmer did not show well against a far cheaper rival.
