Château Palmer

Château Palmer

Chateau Palmer is named after the retired British officer Major General Palmer, who bought it and renamed it in 1814. The French disliked the English, but in this case owed gratitude. The general invests heavily in quality and builds the name of the British market. Since 1938, Chateau Palmer has been owned by four large families of Bordeaux wine merchants. The vineyards are 55 hectares, located on a plateau with gravelly soil and are sown with Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (40%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The chateau is classified as 3ème Cru Classé, but is generally underestimated. Certain harvests are at least as good, and even better, than those of his famous neighbor Chateau Margaux. Chateau Palmer creates sensual and beautiful wine. Everything that makes a Bordeaux great can be found in it.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
