Château Palmer, Margaux 2014
A wine to make the heart sing, this gloriously good 14 has such verve, purity, harmony and sweetness. The tannins are so fine and creamy they seem to float above the gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit. The deft oak is also wonderfully handled lending depth, mouthfeel and sandalwood notes. Moreover, the overlaying perfume, elegance and freshness makes you crave another sip. Really impressive and very difficult to resist even at this very early stage in its development.
Taster: John Stimpfig
Robust fruit from low yields but no less elegant. Wonderful richness, texture and structure, this will become a superbly balanced wine of great beauty.
