Garnering Third Growth status from the historic Classification of 1855, Château Palmer of the Margaux appellation is known for its forward-thinking practices, imaginative culture and world-class wines. Named after the reputable General Palmer of the British Army, the château is now owned by local negociants including the Mahler-Besse and Sichel families. Many believe Palmer’s reputation has exceeded its third growth ranking since its legendary performance in the 1961 vintage arguably exceeding First Growth Chateau Margaux in quality.
