Château Palmer, Margaux 2011
Nice florality here with blackcurrant and juniper on the nose. Given the significantly cooler conditions of 2011, this has convincing elegant complexity and weight with black fruit, quite firm tannins and bright acidity. Still young and not a great Palmer by any means, but it punches well above most other 2011s and will repay medium term drinking.
