Château Palmer, Margaux 2006

After the generous 2005 vintage, 2006 was more challenging with much more variable weather. A blend of 56% Cabernet and 44% Merlot, this is altogether fresher than 2005, with a gorgeous sappy minerality which mingles with pure cassis fruit and fragrant sandalwood. In style, it is like 2004 but with a bit more depth and sophistication. Good now, but will only get better.
