Tasting this truly outstanding wine instinctively reminds us of the euphoria we felt at vintage time, in September 2005. The colour is very deep, almost black. The nose is incredibly complex, with overtones of blackberry, black cherry, Asian spice, sandalwood, iris, and smoky nuances. With aeration, these various aromas combine in perfect harmony. None dominates, and all contribute to great aromatic complexity. 2005 ChÃ¢teau Palmer has tremendous, perhaps unprecedented richness on the palate. The tannin is astonishingly powerful, but manages to retain the estate's trademark velvetiness. While smooth, the texture is magnificently fine-grained. The aftertaste is so long, and so fine, that this is unquestionably one of the most beautiful wines we have ever made. Who knows when this monumental Palmer will reach its peak?
