Château Palmer

Château Palmer Grand Cru Classé Margaux  

Chateau Palmer is one of a large collection - ten in all - of third growth properties located in Margaux. In terms of sheer quality Palmer leads this pack by a length, producing wine of such a high standard that it frequently wipes the floor with the Margaux second growths, and if we look back a few decades we can see the wines challenging those of Chateau Margaux for the best in the appellation.

Indeed, were it not for the renaissance of Chateau Margaux following its purchase by the Mentzelopoulos family in 1977 Palmer may well have been the top wine of the appellation today. The 52 hectares of vineyards are located in Margaux and Cantenac, situated on crops of gravelly stone. 

They form a fairly deep surface layer, up to four metres deep, over the bedrock. Planting density is high at 10000 plants per hectare, with an unusually high proportion (47%) of Merlot for the commune, with 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Merlot accounts for over 40% of the blend, and as much as 60% in some older vintages.

The vineyard is not biodynamic but much attention is paid to pest management using biological methods, although there is sometimes a need to spray to prevent disease. The wine is pumped over the skins, which macerate for up to 20 days, and malolactic is encouraged before the wine goes into oak where it spends up 21 months, with regular topping up.

It is racked four times in the first year cellar, and blending decisions are also made at this time. In the second year it receives an egg white fining before being bottled unfiltered. The grand vin is Chateau Palmer; this sees up to 21 months in oak of which 45% is new. There is a second wine now called Alter Ego de Palmer but previously called Réserve de General; this sees up to 17 months in oak, of which 20% is new.
