Very nice margaux. I am glad they poured the 1996 at the Wine Spectator Grand Tour. It seemed to be the right time. This was 40% merlot, 55% cab and the balance was cab franc and petit verdot.

Full ruby-red. Lower-toned aromas of boysenberry, mulberry, plum, tobacco, star anise and roasted oak. Vinous and rather tough in the mouth, with strong acid spine. This was harder to view than most 96s on my recent tour. Finishes with rather tough ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Chateau Palmer 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: The sensuous, generous dollop of 40 % Merlot that went into this I think is what makes this so exquisite and beguiling. Warm, sweet red fruit with a hint of vanilla leading you to a palate which is plump and fleshy but elegant and sophisticated. It really reminds of a top Grand Cru Burgundy from a great year with its purity and grace. Please dont be put off if you read words like "elegant" to mean thin and lacking flavour as it can often mean in wine terms. Quite the contrary here, this is jam packed full of oomph and the finish is 3 to 4 minutes long. If its a small Christmas Day or New Years Eve gathering this year for you ( or you are an incredibly generous host/hostess and having the hordes in!) and you want something that will tick all the boxes ( and some boxes you hadnt even known you had) you wont be disappointed and you will certainly have a very happy C
