1985 Chateau Palmer

Post by AHB » 22:27 Sun 27 Dec 2015

Deep red with an opaque centre. A glorious nose full of dried cranberries and fresh flowers. Nice texture, rich mid-palate with a good balance from the combination of powerful tannins and sweet fruit core. The sweet fruit dominates the slightly chewy finish. Enjoyable wine. 88/100. Drunk 24-Nov-15. Pop 'n' pour.

Drunk at Otto's on 24 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
