Chateau Palmer, 2001, Margaux, Bordeaux

Chateau Palmer, 2001, Margaux, Bordeaux
Property of Mr Flabby Less

Dark ruby in colour. Sweet potpourri aromatics of dark fruits, pencil shavings, tobacco smoke, cocoa and mild leather. Velvety palate. Elegantly balanced. Concentrated. Has depth. Taste of dark fruits, mild spice and mineral. Tinge of green pepper after taste. Silky smooth. Decent finish of cedar and cassis. Firm tannins.

Third growth. Quite stubborn so needs patience when opened. Ideally decant for at least 1.5 hours.
