Dear Fellow Oenophiles,
On Tuesday April 26th, we have the luxury of hosting Bernard de Laage de Meux, Director for Chateau Palmer Margaux. He will be in Miami for one night only and we guarantee this will be an exquisite experience.
Please see below for details and information about the Grand Tasting.
Margaux star Château Palmer needs little introduction. It’s ranked second in Margaux, just a notch behind Château Margaux itself, although in the 1855 classification it’s actually a third growth. Despite this, Palmer is one of the Château people talk about in discussions about which properties could be elevated to first growth status, along with the likes of Leoville Les Cases.
Palmer has 52 hectares of vines, with a larger proportion of Merlot than is usual for a left-bank estate. Typical make up of the grand vin is equal proportions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with 5% Petit Verdot, but this changes with each vintage.
