In the early twentieth century, it was customary for the great châteaux in the Médoc to produce a few barrels of white wine, reserved for the personal consumption of their owners.

This was the case at Château Palmer until the 30s. A pleasant surprise and relic of this era, two bottles of Château Palmer white wine from the 1925 vintage, the trace of which had been lost, were found at the end of the 90s at the home of a French collector.

In the early 2000s, to perpetuate this tradition, a few stock of these long-forgotten white wine vines were replanted: Muscadelle, Sauvignon Gris, and Loset. The Vin Blanc de Palmer has been produced in limited quantity since 2007, for the owners and guests of the estate.

Notes and Reviews

Château Tasting

Golden straw colour. The wine has an attractive, charming fragrance with citrus and fruity notes. The taste of the wine is fresh, luxurious, enveloping with notes of white fruit and citrus, with good acidity and a long finish.
