As said a number of times: Chateau Palmer is one of my all time favourites. The wine has a perplexing richness and sophistication. It is intense, has layers of complex fruit. It develops in the mouth into a festive smorgasboard of flavors: red and black fruit, embedded in vanilla, herbs, chocolate etc. It is wines like these that can easily make one addicted to the best Bordeaux has to offer. It frankly makes my day when I enjoy a bottle of this. So, on the question: Are there wines that are worth such crazy prices: Palmer in the best vintages is one of them.

This spectacular offering should continue to improve, and may merit an even higher score after additional aging. Stunningly rich and powerful, the dark purple-tinged 2005 Palmer is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. Aromas of incense, burning embers, black currants, plums, licorice, and flowers are followed by a full-bodied Margaux with more weight and power even than its nearby first-growth rival, Chateau Margaux. The abundant acidity and tannins are beautifully coated by the wine’s exceptional fruit extract and overall harmony and richness. It is so concentrated that one is hard pressed to find even a hint of new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2045+
