2012 Margaux Troisieme Cru Classe

The 2012 Chateau Palmer is 48% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot. The rich and vigorous Merlot is reminiscent of the exceptional vintages of the end of the past decade. The Cabernets Sauvignons are as neat and precise as the 2008 vintage. This unusual combination brings forth the harmony between thick, delicate, and subtle characters of Chateau Palmer wines. The 2012 Chateau Palmer should peak between 2022 and 2040.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
ChÃóteau Palmer is one of the vintageâÇÖs superstars. Opaque purple, with a gorgeous nose of blueberry, blackberry fruit, licorice, incense and graphite, the wine has a multi-dimensional, skyscraper-like richness, stunningly well-integrated acidity, tannin, wood, and alcohol, a finish of close to 45 seconds and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This is a great wine from Margaux in 2012 and one of the vintageâÇÖs most remarkable efforts. Anticipated maturity: 2022-2040+. The final blend was 48% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot.
