Palmer

Margaux Protected Designation of Origin, and Third Great Classed Growth

The wines of Chateau Palmer

With its four towers, Chateau Palmer can only be seen from the side of the famous wine road that goes through the village of Issan. Two families, Malher-Besse and Sichel, own Chateau Palmer, a Margaux Second Great Classed Growth (Classification of 1855). The estate is located 25 km from Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Gironde. Chateau Palmer's vineyard covers 55 hectares. The vines are about 39 years old and grow on a plateau of deep Garonne gravels and sandy-clay soils. Three grape varieties can be found, two of them equal in proportion: 47% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot. Thanks to the proportion of Merlot, which is higher than in other estates, Chateau Palmer's wine is generous and supple. It also displays spicy notes that come from Petit Verdot grapes.

Two Red Bordeaux cuvees are produced in Chateau Palmer. The first wine, Chateau Palmer's Great Wine, is renowned all over the word for its exceptional and qualitative aromatic power, and for its rich, supple and full-bodied personality that can be compared to some Pomerol wines of the right bank. From 1961 to 1977, Palmer dominated all the wines of Margaux, being far beyond its rank in the classification of 1855. A second wine, "Alter Ego de Palmer" has also been produced by Chateau Palmer since the 1998 vintage. “Alter Ego de Palmer” showed a new approach in the selection and blend of the wine, creating a supple and round wine that is vividly juicy, and meant to be enjoyed in its youth. Palmer's Great Wine is a velvety wine, well balanced between rich flavours and powerful tannins. It's a wine of rare elegance. It can be kept for more than 25 years in the cellar, for the best years. 201520102009200520022000199919961989198319701966, and the legendary 1961 vintage (that got the perfect tasting notes score of 100 from Robert Parker) are exceptional vintages that were produced by Domaine Palmer. Chateau Palmer's wines are renowned all over the world and sought after by a lot of enthusiasts.
