About Chateau Palmer

Located on the low rising hills of Margaux in Bordeaux, Château Palmer gets its name from the Englishman General Palmer, who owned the property in the nineteenth century. It consists of nearly 111 acres and produces 12,000 to 15,000 cases of superior-quality wine each year. The wines, which are a blend of approximately 55 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 40 percent Merlot, and small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, are generally rich and supple and have a marvelous perfumed bouquet. The best vintages are capable of aging for 20 to 30 years.

Ranked as a Troisième Cru (third growth) in the classification of 1855, many wine connoisseurs feel that the Chateau is a candidate for upgrading to Premier Cru (first growth) status.

What is a Vertical Tasting?

The idea of a vertical tasting is to try to identify traits that exist in the same wine year after year. In a vertical tasting, wines from the same winery, wine estate, or château - but produced in different, often-contiguous years, are presented .

What is Margaux?

Margaux is the name of a designated classified wine growing area, governed by rules and regulations established by the French government in 1855. The Margaux is the most southerly of the Médoc's wine growing areas which includes the famous third growth Chateau Palmer estate. The area makes almost entirely red wine. Wines from the Margaux can be quite 'perfumy' and exhibit a wonderful silkiness and elegance.
