Château Palmer Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 vintage red Cabernet Blends Wine by Palmer from Margaux, Bordeaux, France

Chateau Palmer:
A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Château Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends. To experience its timelessness, there is no better way than to taste it. Again and again.

A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Château Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends. To experience its timelessness, there is no better way than to taste it. Again and again. Finesse and elegance, typical of the great wines of Margaux, are the permanent trademarks of Château Palmer, characterized by the softness and refinement of silk, the warmth of velvet, and the leather of noblesse. The unusual combination of grape varieties – as much Merlot as Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Petit Verdot – gives Château Palmer a bouquet of extraordinary complexity, with fruit, flowers, and spice wrapped in a fleshy and generous structure. The subtle balance between aromatic richness and powerful yet always restrained tannins makes Palmer a wine of incomparable charm, even when very young. Its length leaves the persistent memory of a heady mix of sensations and emotions. Long barrel ageing is essential for Château Palmer to give full expression to its gravely soil and reveal all its body and flesh. This ageing continues very slowly for many years and even decades in the bottle. Your patience will be generously rewarded when you taste an old vintage. It exudes a particularly rich and complex aromatic finish, sometimes exotic, always unforgettable. Wine tasting is a meeting of two living bodies as they surrender to each other, the human being and the wine. Tasters always have expectations from the wine they choose: good wines meet them; Château Palmer exceeds them. Read less

The second wine from Chateau Palmer, Alter Ego is always excellent with a forward style and supple tannins. The 2006 is no exception. It shows classic Margaux finesse and intensity. Wine & Spirits Magazine scored it 92 points saying "This blend is selected to offer more immediate pleasure than the Palmer and it succeeds in 2006 with lovely fullness of cabernet balanced by the rich textural nuance of merlot. It's a succulent, black wine, with detailed scents of cherry, mushroom and meat. A polished Margaux to enjoy over the next five or six years, this would be delicious with a rosemary'd leg of lamb."
