The 2012 Palmer boasts 96-points from Robert Parker (The Wine Advocate), who called it ‘one of the vintage’s superstars’ back in 2015.
Antonio Galloni (Vinous) gave it 94-points and described it as ‘silky, voluptuous and beautifully layered’.
Perrotti-Brown observed that the wine ‘explodes from the glass with a provocative perfume of stewed black plums, boysenberry preserves, and licorice, with suggestions of Chinese five spice, dried roses, and sandalwood’.
For Anson, ‘the annual release of 10-year-old Château Palmer, and this time it’s an often-underrated but delicious vintage that sits in the shadow of the most prestigious years of the last decade’.
Last year’s re-release of the 2011 (£2,736 per case) represented a 32% premium on previous stocks of the vintage. The 2011’s current Market Price of £2,360 still sits below it.
