Château Palmer x Hedonism Wines

The Palmer Vault at Hedonism Wines

 

Château Palmer is one of the world's most recognisable and critically acclaimed Estates in Bordeaux and is rightly famous not only for their complex, age-worthy Grand Vin, but also their superb second wine, Alter Ego de Palmer, their excellent White Bordeaux, Vin Blanc de Palmer and their exceptionally rare experimental Cabernet / Syrah blend Historical XIX Century Wine.

The vineyards of Château Palmer trace their history back to the mid-1700s. At this time, it was known as Château Gascq and produced some of the region's most celebrated wines and was enjoyed by French aristocracy in the court of Versailles. The property was acquired by Englishman Major General John Palmer in the early 1800s and by the 1830s, it was held in as high a regard as the celebrated First Growth Château Margaux.

The cellar at Chateau Palmer

 

Château Palmer in modernity can be traced back to their incredible bottling of the 1961 vintage. The wine was the superstar of the vintage and is still considered to be one of the greatest Bordeaux wines of the last 100 years. Although officially classified as a Third Growth, Palmer is now more often uttered in the same breath as the great First Growths of the Médoc - Mouton-Rothschild, Lafite, Latour, Margaux and Haut-Brion.
