    The deep, intense ruby hued Chateau Palmer 2005 is 53% de Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. The first nose exhibits Morello cherry notes complemented by oriental spices and wild herbs. Aeration confirms Margaux’s luscious yet fleshy vintage with black fruits accents. Rich, intense, and precise on the attack, the stunning balance results from the superior quality of the tannins which offset a young body. Fascinating and mesmerizing, this Chateau Palmer 2005 will most certainly bring genuine, intense pleasure in a few decades.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the 2005 Château Palmer is a legend in the making. Apparently the vines received 57% less rain than average, yet the 2005 shrugs off any water deficiency and has nurtured a wondrously pixelated bouquet, whereby mineralité shines through the black cherry and blueberry fruit. Search deeper and you discover veins of graphite that impart a Pauillac-like allure. The palate is medium-bodied and intense, but it is not overwhelming, a Margaux that is galvanized with a firm backbone thereby ensuring this will age over the long term. The symmetry here is enthralling - a 2005 that is destined for greatness. The only question is whether it will surpass the 2009 or 2010 Palmer? It will be fun finding out. Tasted May 2015.
