Château Palmer is regarded as one of the very finest of all Bordeaux, just a little behind Château Margaux in Margaux itself. It's not only famous for its wines, but the beautiful four-turret château that was built in 1856 is an icon to the region. Technical director Thomas Duroux arrived at the estate in 2004, ushering in a golden era for Palmer. He describes its wines as ones of moderation, without ostentation, that need time for appreciation. Second wine Alter Ego uses the same grapes, often from the same plots, as the Grand Vin, but is a different interpretation of the terroir. Since 2008, they have embraced a biodynamic approach and use native yeasts too. Dark and brooding, with a core of intense fruit, structure and complexity.

"Deep and brooding, with a layered core of fruit, a gourmand, voluptuous wine; broad drinking window." William Kelley
