Second Wine Alter Ego de Palmer
About Chateau Palmer is second among equals in the Margaux appellation. It should have probably been placed as a First Growth in the 1855 classification but circumstance mitigated against it at the time. Still it has more than made up for it since and is now consistently producing magnificent wines with great longevity which are in huge demand by drinkers and investors alike.
