Winemakers Notes

About  - 'In 1824, Charles Palmer (1777-1851), Major Genral in the British army, bought a wine property from the Gascq family on wthich he was to leave his name. Today two Bordeaux families, Sichel and Mähler-Besse have owned Château Palmer since 1938, passing on a tradition of excellence from generation to generation. Thanks to their sustained uncompromising efforts, this exceptional terroir continues to produce oustanding wines, sought after by wine lovers throughout the world.

Soil -The Palmer vineyards cover 55 hectares in the commune of Canternac. The gravely soil consist of stones - lydite, quartzite and chalcedony.

Vintage Conditions- The ripening conditions for the grapes were a constant source of stress. From mid-June through to July - bunch thinning allowed us to maintain a good aeration in the clusters. The weather remained cool at the end of July, so we responded in most areas of the vineayrd by painstakingly thinning the leaves around teh clusters, letting the berries enjoy a  maximum exposure to sunlight. At the end of August the grapes were looking good. September began with the arrival of an east wind that concentrated  the berries and accelerated their ripening.

Grape Varieties -  49% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot.
