Lot #12. Palmer 1975

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 90 RP.
"The 1975 Palmer has consistently been one of the top wines of the vintage. The color remains a dark ruby with no signs of amber. The wine reveals plenty of sweet fruit in the fragrant bouquet. Although more tannic than most top vintages of Palmer, this is a full-bodied, rich, concentrated wine with the vintage's toughness and high tannin well-displayed. Yet I believe it possesses enough sweet fruit and extract to stand up to the tannin. Shockingly, the most developed bottle of 1975 Palmer I have tasted was from an Imperial several years ago. From my cellar, the wine is still very young . . ." Wine Advocate #103, Feb 1996
Provenance: The Moineau Cellar
Notes: Top shoulder, lightly corroded capsule, nicked, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
