Palmer

2012 {(currentVariant.size?' | ':'')} {( currentVariant.size )}
Margaux, Medoc, Bordeaux, France
Type Red
Drink Now/Cellar
3rd Growth

The Merlot, rich and exuberant, remind us of the best vintages of the first decade of the 2000s. The Cabernet Sauvignon are linear and precise and in line with a 2008. This unusual marriage harmoniously highlights the smoothness, elegance and refinement of Chateau Palmer wines.

Deep inky-purple. Enticing perfume of blackberry, spices and violet. Then rich, dense and suave on the palate, offering fleshy flavors of crushed blackberry, dark plum, licorice, mocha and black pepper. This sweet, generous, fine-grained wine is perked up by insidious peppery acidity. The finish is long and scented, with a suggestion of slightly unripe tannins at the back. Still, this is a successful Palmer in the context of the vintage.

Reviewer: Antonio Galloni

The 2012 Palmer is silky, voluptuous and beautifully layered in the glass. Black cherry, plum, mocha, bittersweet chocolate and dark spices flesh out in a decidedly opulent, racy Palmer built on pure texture. Silky, tannins round out the polished, suave finish.The 2012s at Palmer are made from unusually low yields of around 28 hectoliters per hectare. One of the effects of the 2011 hailstorm that hit the estate was a lowering of the following year's crop, which has resulted in rich, tannic wines. Estate Manager Thomas Duroux opted to give the 2012s more time in barrel than is customary and the wines were bottled in September 2014.
