Chateau Palmer was built during the Second Empire by the Parisian bankers Emile and Isaac Preire. The chateau's elegant architecture features four pointed turrets Vines surround the chateau and outbuildings. The vineyards grow on gravelly outcrops in Margaux and Cantenac. The gravel consists of large smooth pebbles that are either lydian, quartz or pudding stone called graves de Palassou
This outstanding terroir is ideal for making great wine. It overlooks the Gironde estuary and benefits from the Medoc's unique oceanic microclimate.
