2012 Château Palmer, Cru Classé Margaux
The ripeness of the Merlot and the precision of the Cabernet were key for the 2012 vintage. The two varieties were very different in style and a big concern for the Château was the blend, however we were told ‘the blend came easily in 4-5 tastings’ - settling on 48% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Cassis, blackcurrant leaf, hints of pine and cedar wood. Wonderful integration of dark fruits, silky tannins and refreshing acidity lead to a huge grand finale of a finish. A completely stunning wine.
