BOW (8.5)

Parker (94)

The 2012 Palmer's inky/purple color is more saturated than most Margaux's, and it offers complex notes of blackberries, cassis, licorice, truffle and spring flowers. The wine is dense, rich and full-bodied with a muscular appeal, but the tannins, as high as they are, are sweet and well-integrated. None of the new oak used during the wine-s upbringing is noticeable. Interestingly, this wine showed no evidence of dilution from the October 7-9 rainfall. I suspect it will require 3-4 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades.

Winespectator / James Suckling (94)

Score: 92-95
Juicy, with a bright leafy note framing the dark plum and blackberry fruit. Lots of singed alder and spice notes flow through the finish, which has solid but integrated grip. A buried iron edge emerges in the end.
