Château Palmer 2019 – Margaux 3ème Grand Cru Classé

Château Palmer 2019 – Margaux 3ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is racy, elegant and offers a nice racy minerality/sense of place, a nice grain, some concentration as well as a nice ripeness of the fruit (bordering on over-ripeness). There are notes of boysenberry, blueberry and more slightly black tea combined with delicate touches of black pepper, camphor, fairly ripe red berries as well as a hint of saffron (on the floral side) and a subtle hint of toast/grey pepper in the background. The palate is very discreetly tight and offers a nice freshness, minerality, a fresh frame, a nice definition, power/force and a nice stretch. A wine full of freshness, balance and power “in balance” (without exuberance). On the palate this wine expresses crisp/fresh blue berry, fresh cherry and more slightly crunchy/fresh red berry notes combined with hints of boysenberry, fine blueberry, graphite, chocolate, subtle hints of bergamot and cardamom. Lovely persistence and subtle chewiness on the finish. Nice quality of tannins, mellow, racy. Nice generosity and authenticity of fruit. A fine flowery side on the finish.
