Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the 1970 Château Palmer (again) disappoints compared to marvelous showing in the 1990s, suggesting that its decline has been far more rapid than say the 1966 or the 1961 even. It has quite a deep hue with brick rim. The bouquet starts well with a succinct nose: pomegranate, wilted violet and bay leaf, nicely defined, if lacking horsepower. The palate is medium-bodied with a lightly spiced entry.
