Château Palmer 2018 Margaux Troisieme Cru Classe 6 x 75cl Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 53% Merlot 40% Petit Verdot 7% Organic with no added Sulpur
It is the essence of cabernet fruit with density that is so thick that it has the texture of grape puree. Full body and melted tannins that give the wine a sense of velvet. Very soft and juicy. With air, it goes to bright, crushed black currants. Tar. Fresh tannins give it energy. I have never tasted anything like this in all my 38 years as a wine critic in Bordeaux. From tiny berries of cabernet sauvignon (53 per cent), 40 per cent merlot and seven per cent petit verdot (JS)
