While Originlly classified as a Third Growth in 1855, Château Palmer has rightfully earned a reputation for tasting and being priced as a Second Growth (some even compare it to a First Growth). In the 1960s, when the famed Château Margaux was unfortunately mismanaged, Château Palmer was considered the epitome of the Margaux appellation.  When one first visits the property, it takes just a few minutes for one to gain the insight that Château Palmer is located a stone's throw away (literally) from Château Margaux, thus sharing the same terroir.  The owners and winemakers at Château Palmer have not wasted this natural endowment.  Many decades (some say over a century) of consistent efforts by generations of caretakers of Château Palmer have created a delightful, silky wine that will please the palate of the most critical consumers.

Tasting Notes

""In 2009, we chose to adventure down a new path. In some places, the way proved quite sinuous; in others, it was bestrewn with pitfalls, challenges and unknowns. Yet rather quickly, this choice began to appear self-evident, and today the Palmer vineyards seem to be rewarding us for all the care and energy we have given them over the past ten years: the 2019 harvest was bounteous, the grapes were radiant, the wines bewitching.

Of course, a Palmer wine remains the intimate reflection of a mosaic of terroirs specific to this beautiful estate. But it is also the expression of a unique combination of fleshy Merlots and silky Cabernets.

In 2019, the Merlots enjoyed dry and sunny weather conditions up to the very end, giving rise to wines full of power, exuberance and flesh. The Cabernets, harvested after the scattered rains of late September, would develop a certain coolness and reserve, to produce wines of rare distinction. It is this uncommon marriage that has placed our two wines, Château Palmer and Alter Ego, in the rarefied circle of exceptional vintages." - THOMAS DUROUX, CEO OF CHÂTEAU PALMER
