Chateau Palmer - Margaux - red - 2012 - 750 ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Château Palmer is one of the vintage’s superstars. Opaque purple, with a gorgeous nose of blueberry, blackberry fruit, licorice, incense and graphite, the wine has a multi-dimensional, skyscraper-like richness, stunningly well-integrated acidity, tannin, wood, and alcohol, a finish of close to 45 seconds and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This is a great wine from Margaux in 2012 and one of the vintage’s most remarkable efforts. Anticipated maturity: 2022-2040+. The final blend was 48% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot.” 96 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
In 1814, General Charles Palmer purchased Madame de Gascq’s wine estate, and subsequently gave it his name. Two hundred years later, Château Palmer continues to write its own history from one vintage to the next.
Grape varieties: 48% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot
