Decanter - 96 points 
44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 56% Merlot. A clear step up from the 2004, even though the vintages were not dissimilar in style. A more delicate grain of tannins is on display, perhaps because 2006 was the first vintage where they took a more rigorous approach in the vineyard. Very dark fruits: cassis and bilberry. This is gentle in its spicing, finessed and expansive through the mid-palate, mouthwatering on the finish. Opens in waves as it sits in the glass. (12/2018)

Jane Anson - 94 points 
Less exuberant in its aromatics than the 2005, a touch of crème de cassis on the first nose, slightly chalky tannins but as it opens in the glass you dive through to the rich blackberry and cassis fruits. This is a satisfyingly balanced and classically Left Bank Palmer - concentrated, savoury fruits, touches of cedar and mint leaf on the finish, grilled liqourice, nuanced and finessed. Harvest September 19 to October 2, 60% new oak. (12/2021)

Wine Advocate - 94 points 
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Palmer was wonderful out of barrel ten years ago and now in bottle, it fulfills its promise with a stunning, precise bouquet of maraschino, iodine, cassis and tobacco scents that seem a few years younger than its Margaux peers. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin that cloak its sweet core of cassis and blackcurrant fruit. However, what is so striking is the fineness of the tannin and just how well that oak is subsumed into the fabric of the wine. This is a long-term proposition: a great Margaux from Thomas Duroux. (5/2016)

Wine Enthusiast - 94 points 
A big, brooding wine, the fruit ripe and dense. Richness surrounds structure, giving a sumptuous layer to the dusty tannins. Flavors of currants, spice and juicy berries flow through the wine, giving power and suavity. The freshness of 2006 shows on the finish of this important wine. (3/2009)
