Estate Notes

The turreted Château Palmer, originally established by English Major-general Charles Palmer who arrived after the Napoleonic wars, is now under the control of Franck Mähler-Besse, the son of a Dutch immigrant.

An intensely seductive Margaux style, incredibly rich and deeply concentrated through history (although it has become more subtle and approachable in style recently), Palmer is highly sought after around the world – and sits just below (in Margaux's current appellation hierarchy.

Reviews

“Very deep garnet colour. Smokey / spicy aromas with some sweaty saddles, cloves and white pepper complimenting the core of warm cassis. The medium+ bodied wine is quite muscular with concentrated, somewhat masculine / savoury fruit juxtaposed by the elegance of structure. Medium to firm very fine tannins and medium+ acidity. Long finish." eRobertParker.com
