  • Although Palmer stands among ten Third Growth properties located in Margaux, its primary rival for best of appellation comes from the first growth estate Chateau Margaux. Palmer's original name was Chateau de Gascq, but was changed to its owner's namesake after its purchase by General Charles Palmer in 1814. The current owners are the descendants of the Sichel and Mahler-Besse families, who acquired the property in the early 20th century.

    Chateau Palmer is traditionally made with the assemblage containing a higher-than-average percentage of Merlot (up to 40%). The vineyards are situated on gravelly stone over bedrock. Palmer wines are generally rich, supple and a very fruit-forward in character. In addition to its grand vin, Chateau Palmer also produces a second wine called Alter Ego de Palmer, previously known as Reserve de General.
