2018 Château Palmer, Cru Classé Margaux
With a yield of 11hl/ha, no Alter Ego this year, and half the normal production of the Grand Vine, this is a wine that will be in very short supply. Following mildew in June, there was just one bunch per vine, allowing almost remarkable intensity in the wine. Indeed, there’s a higher IPT reading (the reading used to measure density of tannins) than in the supercharged 2010. However, the wine remains remarkably elegant, with a cool, mineral styling and a mouthfeel that leaves you weak at the knees. A remarkable wine, and one that you’ll have to secure on first release.
