Marquis Wine Cellars is extremely pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Château Palmer vertical dinner at Blue Water Café on Tuesday, November 8th, 2016. In attendance as the guest of honour will be Jean-Louis Carbonnier who has worked with Château Palmer since 2003 first in their public relations department in the United States and then ascending to the role Director for the America’s in 2013. A dedicated educator, Carbonnier regularly lectures about Palmer and has hosted numerous events at wine festivals, universities and private homes.
As guests arrive for the dinner they will be greeted with a glass of Champagne and passed canapé’s. Everyone will then sit down to a specially prepared four course menu that will feature eight vintages of Château Palmer dating back to 1978. Jean-Louis will preside over the dinner entertaining and educating guests with stories about the Château and its wines. Seating for this event is limited and this event is sure to sell out quickly so do not miss out on a rare opportunity to sample multiple wines from one of Bordeaux’s most famous Château.

Among the mythic wines of the Margaux Appellation, Château Palmer has always stood apart, as instantly recognizable for its midnight blue label as for its inimitable bouquet, an uncommon blend of power and delicacy. Emerging in the 17th century, the estate only became Château Palmer in 1814, when it was acquired by Charles Palmer, a dashing British Major General who instilled his namesake with enough éclat and glamour to see it become renowned throughout London’s aristocratic circles. In 1853, the Péreire brothers, among the preeminent financiers of Napoleon III’s France, brought the rigour and vision needed for Château Palmer to be ranked among the most prestigious classified growths of the 1855 classification. In 1937, a consortium of four leading families in the Bordeaux wine trade acquired the estate, heralding an era of momentous vintages and deep-rooted stability – indeed, Palmer is still owned by the descendants of two of these families. Today, the men and women leading Château Palmer into the 21st century are rhyming tradition with innovation in their passionate pursuit to capture the subtleties of one of the world’s most legendary terroirs. Château Palmer's eminently complex wines, combining aromatic richness and extraordinary elegance with a beguiling velvet texture and remarkable ageing potential, are reflections of those spirited efforts and all that distinguishes this 66 ha estate. A veritable mosaic of soils, a unique vineyard planting of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon subtly enriched with Petit Verdot, and pioneering farming techniques that respect nature’s exquisite equilibrium, together make these wines transcendent expressions of the Margaux appellation.
