History of Château Palmer

In the early 1800s, Marie Brunte de Ferriere, better known as Madame de Gascq, was trying to sell Château de Gascq. When she met Charles Palmer, she told him in no uncertain terms that the wine they produce at Château de Gascq is as good as the wine of Château Lafite! It was not long after their initial meeting that he purchased the famous Margaux estate and like many Bordeaux chateaux owners of their time, he renamed it after himself, calling it Château Palmer. In 1843, Charles Palmer sold Château Palmer to the Pereire family. In 1938, The Pereire family sold Château Palmer to a consortium of four families that included some of the wealthiest Bordeaux negociants. The two majority shareholders of Château Palmer today remain the same two families, both of which are well known and respected Bordeaux wine negociants, Mahler Besse and Sichel.

Château Palmer is a winery in the Margaux appellation d’origine contrôlée of the Bordeaux region of France. The wine produced here was classified as one of fourteen Troisièmes Crus (Third Growths) in the historic Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.
