Chateau Palmer Margaux 2006


SKU 17184


Nicely intense purple color. Vigorous nose of red fruits and blackberries, wood, mint, stone fruits, tobacco, moss and violet. Still very young, the palate indicates lovely fruits, tight palpable tannins, heaps of freshness and solid length. The wine displays a slight lack of suppleness that ageing will tame in the coming years. The material is there for this classic vintage Palmer to become the epitome of elegance itself.

Wine EnthusiastA 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.

Wine AdvocateTasted at the Grand Vin Masterclass in January 2010 Deep garnet-purple colour. Ripe plum, cassia, cardamom and a whiff of musk / animal on the nose with some mocha and cigar boxes. Medium to high acidity balances out the concentrated dark cherry richness. Medium to firm level of fine tannins and a long finish.

Wine SpectatorCoffee, plum and spices on the nose follow through to a full body, with lovely fruit and a soft, silky-textured finish. Very balanced and beautiful, with lots of violet, new wood and richness. Long. Needs time. Best after 2015.
