Château Palmer 2016 – Margaux, Cru Classé

Château Palmer 2016 – Margaux, Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, juicy, beautifully elegant, complex and offers complexity. This wine should be decanted. Do not hesitate to smell hit from time to time to notice its slow and delicate evolution. It reveals notes of Boysen berry, fleshy wild strawberry and more slightly ripe cassis, raspberry/ripe berries associated with fine hints of toasted, chocolate, discreet hints of pepper, flowers, spices as well as a very discreet hint of minerality and nutmeg. The palate is fruity, elegant and offers fleshiness, tension, a beautiful definition, a beautiful precision, a small richness/concentration, power (but all in delicacy), a very beautiful structure, a beautiful finesse, straightness, a beautiful fullness as well as a very discreet firmness. On the  palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed cassis and more slightly juicy/fresh red berries associated with touches of chocolate, liquorice, flowers as well as discreet hints of strawberry, caramelization and an imperceptible hint of Bourbon vanilla. Tannins are elegant, fine and structured. Very discreet chews on the finish. Beautiful juiciness and gourmandize on the finish. A beautiful success!
