Tasting Note:

This is the smallest crop at Chateau Palmer since the legendary `61. This 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee possesses a splendid bouquet. Notes of cut flowers, liquorice, truffle, plum liqueur and high toned berries leap from the glass - this is dramatic and fragrant. The attack is sumptuous, silky and sexy. Ample pure fruit cascades over the palate - there is a fruit explosion, yet this is in no way jammy or over blown, it maintains a demure dignity. One can really taste the impressive dry extract; cranberries, cassis and damsons. Texturally this is utterly seductive; dense but so fine. This is one of the most impressive Palmers we can remember tasting, but sadly there will only be 5000 cases produced.
