The 2012 Chateau Palmer is one of the vintage’s superstars. This 2012 Chateau Palmer has a 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 vintage’s most remarkable efforts. The 2012 Chateau Palmer should peak between 2022 and 2040.
