Chateau Palmer 2006 - 1.5 Litre Bottle

Product description

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

A big, brooding wine, the fruit ripe and dense. Richness surrounds structure, giving a sumptuous layer to the dusty tannins. Flavours of currants, spice and juicy berries flow through the wine, providing power and suavity. The freshness of 2006 shows on the finish of this important wine.

93 Points - Wine Spectator

Coffee, plum and spices on the nose follow through to a full body, with lovely fruit and a soft, silky-textured finish. Very balanced and beautiful, with lots of violets, new wood and richness. Long. Best after 2015.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The dense ruby/purple-hued 2006 Palmer reveals sweet aromas of melted licorice, underbrush, toast, plums, and black cherries. With outstanding density, a medium to full-bodied style, and a personality that recalls 1996, this blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot possesses moderately high tannins and plenty of aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.
