Chateau Palmer Margaux 2006

Chateau Palmer Margaux 750ML 2006     
Sku: 14074

 Wine Advocate 92 points (Mar 2010)
Tasted at the chateau. So, Palmer made a better wine than the invincible Chateau Margaux in 2006? Looks like it, for no other reason that Palmer is blessed with superior terroir suited towards that grape varietal. Simple as that. A deep purple/garnet hue. A deep, opulent, compelling nose of blackberry, cedar, limestone with a certain “coolness” about it. The palate is full-bodied with filigree tannins and wonderful delineation. It has a tension that I did not find in Chateau Margaux, whilst there is an added dimension of something from the sea, a slight briny element. Good persistency, beautifully poised finish, this wine sets the benchmark for the appellation in 2006. Tasted April 2007.
The dense ruby/purple-hued 2006 Palmer reveals sweet aromas of melted licorice, underbrush, toast, plums, and black cherries. Outstanding density, a medium to full-bodied style, and a personality that recalls 1996, this blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot possesses moderately high tannins as well as plenty of aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.

Wine maker notes
A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Chateau Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends. To experience its timelessness, there is no better way than to taste it. Again and again. Finesse and elegance, typical of the great wines of Margaux, are the permanent trademarks of Chateau Palmer, characterized by the softness and refinement of silk, the warmth of velvet, and the leather of noblesse. The unusual combination of grape varieties as much Merlot as Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Petit Verdot gives Chateau Palmer a bouquet of extraordinary complexity, with fruit, flowers, and spice wrapped in a fleshy and generous structure. The subtle balance between aromatic richness and powerful yet always restrained tannins makes Palmer a wine of incomparable charm, even when very young. Its length leaves the persistent memory of a heady mix of sensations and emotions. Long barrel ageing is essential for Chateau Palmer to give full expression to its gravely soil and reveal all its body and flesh. This ageing continues very slowly for many years and even decades in the bottle. Your patience will be generously rewarded when you taste an old vintage. It exudes a particularly rich and complex aromatic finish, sometimes exotic, always unforgettable. Wine tasting is a meeting of two living bodies as they surrender to each other, the human being and the wine. Tasters always have expectations from the wine they choose: good wines meet them; Chateau Palmer exceeds them.
