CHATEAU PALMER, 2017

MARGAUX

" le Palmer 2017, de couleur grenat-pourpre profond, offre un nez très sérieux de cordial de cassis prononcé, de prunes chaudes et de confitures de mûres avec des notes de coffre de cèdre, de copeaux de crayon, de violette, de chocolat noir et d'anis étoilé, ainsi que des effluves exotiques de bois de santal et de cassia. Moyennement corsé, le palais présente des fruits noirs fantastiquement vibrants et croquants avec une texture ferme de tanins mûrs et granuleux et des tonnes de fraîcheur, pour finir très long et minéral. " - Robert Parker

History and anecdotes

The English general, Charles Palmer acquired the estate in 1814 and gave it his name in the 1830s. The Pereire brothers, influential bankers, bought Château Palmer in 1853, just before being classified as Troisième Cru in 1855. They built the emblematic château we all know today.

In 1938, the estate was bought by four great families, wine merchants from Bordeaux, the Ginestet, the Mihailhen, the Mähler-Besse and the Sichel. The last two families are nowadays the estate’s owners, but it has been run by Thomas Duroux, an agricultural engineer and oenologist, since 2004.
