Critics acclaimed Super grade 3
In front of the chateau is the national flag of the Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom is for the owners of the multinational.
Margaux district Center and is a level 3 rating, but each critics highly rated. Across the Gironde River vineyards is 900 m and then shelving, the soil is gravel quality mixed gunz glacial features in Margaux in quartz, quartz, chalcedony, etc. [Margaux] [Rauzan] is adjacent, suitable for grape cultivation.
In the Palmer vineyard, planted in rare breed configuration. Varieties Cabernet Sauvignon is planted Merlot in 47% of the field and 47% of the same amount. It is one of a produce mellow this Palme wines of distinctive reasons.
The remaining 6% Petit Verdot; Then cut all the characteristics of this breed is difficult to instead give deep color and a spicy aroma in wine to mature, but remained until 1996, Cabernet franc, all it is repotted to this breed.
Now that rare blend 植畑
Palmer vineyard's first year barrel storage room right in the compartment next to the vines red placemark on the marked "do not mix during harvest for interspersed with parcel Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon because" it seems.
Once the theory that planting is not uncommon, also called "blended wine" Bordeaux wines for these mixtures.
Palme in new fields with no planting, but in part of the old parcel dare leave the State. Click on the placemark, and harvesting is done, is it would not be unreasonable because it grows good grapes. Average age of 35 years is the average age of the Palme is used at Château Palmer is more expensive.
1 Ha per 10000 this further, and has devised to get stretched roots far deeper underground, allowing competition to grape vines with high planting density.
| Harvesting and sorting
Put the harvest and grape harvest 120 participants spent 3 weeks, so get crushed fruit harvest basket of 10 kg, carried to the brewery, placed in the table's latest two-column 4.
1St pick fruit strips grapes during harvesting mixed leaves, fruit, fruit, etc. After excluding peduncle machines on election results of the second catch of peduncle and percieved expired except manually. Then crush the grape crusher, sent to the tank.
Ageing: stainless steel tanks
First look into the brewery is a chateau boasting new "trapezoidal" stainless steel tank. Swap since 1995, previously was a wooden tank, owns 49 based on the current.
[Keystone-] rare tank, now looked like the only Palme and [La Tour] established.
Benefits of this tank is consisting of grape fruit, pericarp, seed for the carbon dioxide during the alcoholic fermentation Lees CAP is pushed on, but is it dry pulp cap top in cavity-type tank, abnormal fermentation begins. However, the trapezoid when the top is narrower and don't rise to the top, some of the juice remaining at the top, prevented such evils.
Also, to dry out at the top for "able" task to extract the dye and tannin, also for the yeast to supply oxygen to the mites is a task of draining wine from the tank bottom, pump from the top like PLoP.
During the wine extracted from the bottom would be coming down kept its shape if the torso tank top for low liquid level. On the other hand, spread out as in trapezoidal case, go to the bottom to just chazuke Peel and fruit, such as, whole win wine all over. Because of this, dye and tannin extraction do more efficiently.
After 20 days during alcoholic fermentation with peels immersed in a temperature of 28 ° c fruit juice into another tank changed the malolactic fermentation.
This process ends after the Chateau Palmer wine is 55% new barrels and 45% while collage (clarifying work) once racked and 1 egg white 3 months, matured for 21 months in the barrel was used one time.
Arte ego is no second wine
For becoming Château Palmer is a famous discreet 'Arte-ego-de-Chateau Palmer (mind of the "one more thing Chateau Palmer")'. At Château Palmer, was making a second wine called La reserve de General until 1997. However, this label will disappear and, was [Arte ego] came out.
Until 1997, was making a second wine, 80% of the whole production of Château Palmer, 10% second wine, 10% of the remaining "negociant" selling was.
However, [Arte ego] changed this ratio when making, Château Palmer is decided 50% Arte ego is 40%, and 10% sell négociants.
I.e., until 1997, was used to Chateau Palmer wine from bad quality, not the early drinking own blended wine palate and decided what Arte ego that is.
It's from Never they Arte ego second wine is not. In General, and the second wine, "wine of inferior quality did not grant van" will be fit and think so there are images that are certainly old ego. Fruity, go for the old ego, low temperature maceration before fermentation is important growing as its own wines, such as.
