|Parker review||Tasted 9 Times With Consistent Notes The 1961 Palmer has long been considered to be a legend from this vintage, and its reputation is well-deserved. The wine is at its apogee, with an extraordinary, sweet, complex nose with aromas of flowers, cassis, toast, and minerals. It is intensely concentrated, offering a cascade of lavishly ripe, full-bodied, opulent fruit, soft tannins, and a voluptuous finish. This is a decadent Palmer, unparalleled since in quality with the exception of 1983 and 1989.|
|Winespectator review||Tasted from magnum. Displays a broad palette of flavors that blend and enhance the elegant, lively texture and lingering finish. In a word, it has finesse. A mouth-watering example of Palmer that outshines châteaus with higher classifications.--1961 Bordeaux horizontal.|
