I certainly can't think of another Palmer coming close to this level of concentration (maybe the 2010 comes closest?). This blockbuster boasts a dense purple hue as well as a primordial bouquet of black cherries, mulberries, and blackberries intermixed with freshly crushed rocks, smoke tobacco, gravelly earth, lead pencil shavings, and burning embers. With full-bodied richness, a dense, stacked mid-palate, mouth coating tannin's, and a blockbuster of a finish, it's going to need 10-15 years to hit maturity, and as I wrote last year, will live for just about forever.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWine Advocate:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e The 2018 Palmer is composed of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Grapes were harvested September 13 to October 15, and the wine has a 3.83 pH and 14.3% alcohol. Very deep purple-black in color, the nose is a little reticent to begin, but with coaxing, it slowly emerges to show fragrant violets, underbrush, mossy bark and iron ore with exponentially growing notions of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, plum preserves, hoisin, Christmas cake and red roses with wafts of dusty earth, Indian spices and cracked black pepper. Full-bodied, concentrated and downright powerful in the mouth, it has a solid structure of firm, wonderfully plush tannins and masses of fragrant accents, finishing very long and very spicy. By the time I finished tasting this, the nose had exploded in this fragrant bomb of fruit, earth and floral notions. This is one of those 2018 wines that has a beguiling brightness that comes from the many floral, spice and mineral accents among all that rich fruit.

He fell under the spell of Bordeaux as well as the charms of Marie de Gascq, a beautiful widow who convinced him to buy her estate. Charles Palmer devoted a great deal of time, energy, and money to developing his property. The Major General lived mainly in England, and so the estate was managed by his authorized representative, Mr Grey, who helped to increase the wine's reputation among wealthy connoisseurs. In June 1853, the brothers Isaac and Emile Péreire, famous bankers and rivals of the Rothschilds, bought Palmer and began investing in the estate immediately. However, there was not enough time to bring Chateau Palmer up to first growth status in time for the famous 1855 classification. It was thus ranked a Third Growth, although it is widely recognized as among the greatest wines of Bordeaux. Several families of Bordeaux, English, and Dutch extraction all involved in the wine trade, united to buy Palmer in 1938 and have worked hard to give the estate its present reputation. These families have always given priority to quality, despite the financial risk this entailed. They have unfailingly applied the principles that have made the great wines of Bordeaux so successful: authenticity, quality, and permanence.","published_at":"2023-03-08T16:52:18-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-24T11:13:44-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","LK2402","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Palmer","Region_Bordeaux","Source_Bestofwines0223","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":159899,"price_min":159899,"price_max":159899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42802486116490,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2018 | Château Palmer | Margaux","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":159899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/56_cd53deae-7cce-42c9-8d61-83e27962e887.jpg?v=1677255254"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/56_cd53deae-7cce-42c9-8d61-83e27962e887.jpg?v=1677255254","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2018 | Château Palmer | Margaux at CaskCartel.com","id":24285498998922,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.415,"height":668,"width":277,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/56_cd53deae-7cce-42c9-8d61-83e27962e887.jpg?v=1677255254"},"aspect_ratio":0.415,"height":668,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/56_cd53deae-7cce-42c9-8d61-83e27962e887.jpg?v=1677255254","width":277}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2018 | Château Palmer | Margaux\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eComplex nose of black cherries, blackberries, dark chocolate and floral undertones with perfume-like character.
