Chateau Palmer Fine Wine Tasting with Plurimi
Château Palmer, named after Major General Palmer, a British officer who settled in Bordeaux in 1814, is second only to the famous Château Margaux in the Margaux appellation. It is located in the centre of Margaux and its beautiful vineyards lie on a sparse gravel plateau, giving the terroir just what it needs to create such complex wines.
Intriguingly, since 1998 the Château has been producing also a second label, (not a second wine), Alter Ego de Palmer, selected from the same quality terroirs, but employing different wine-making techniques and different proportions of grapes. Some 40% of the estate's production is now sold as Alter Ego de Palmer and this gives drinkers a fantastic opportunity to compare and contrast these wonderful wines.
