Chateau Palmer, 3eme Cru Classe Margaux, Bordeaux, France, Magnum, 1978 

Grapes: MERLOT 40%, CABERNET SAUVIGNON 53%, CABERNET FRANC 5%, PETIT VERDOT 2% 

"Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London from magnum, the 1978 Château Palmer has always been a great success for the vintage (mirroring the rejuvenated Château Margaux perhaps?). Here, it has a powerful, expressive nose with cedar, sous-bois and cigar-box scents interwoven into the vestiges of black fruit. This is "old school," perhaps the cousin of the magnificent 1966. The palate is medium-bodied and well balanced, hints of spice and cedar, a little dustiness perhaps towards the finish, but overall a convincing Margaux that has far more vigor and length than you would presume. While it is not a renowned vintage for Château Palmer, it's a wine I would jump upon if I found it for sale. Tasted May 2015."

92/100 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, May 2016
