Chateau Palmer Margaux 3rd Grand Cru Classe 2018
The 2018 Chateau Palmer Margaux 3eme Grand Cru Classe 750ml is a beautiful wine with a deep, dark color and a complex bouquet of dark fruit, spice, and earthy notes. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied, with firm tannins, a rich texture, and a long, smooth finish. This wine is an excellent representation of its terroir and is expected to age well for many years to come.
This dense wine is almost black in color. Offering rich tannins and luscious black fruits, it is ripe with both structure and depth. The concentration and thought-provoking intensity are impressive. Drink this wine from 2028. Roger Voss
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
The 2018 Palmer is composed of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. The wine has a 3.83 pH and 14.3% alcohol. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it explodes from the glass with atomic scents of blackberry preserves, crème de cassis and blueberry pie, plus suggestions of red roses, clove oil, dark chocolate and cedar chest with hints of Chinese five spice and menthol. The full-bodied palate is decadently styled, offering layer upon layer of black fruit preserves and exotic spices, framed by exquisitely plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing wonderfully fragrant and with epic length. It's an amazingly beautiful beast of a wine—one for the hedonists! - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
