When Martine Cazeneuve purchased Château Paloumey in 1990, in partnership with the company François Charles Oberthur, her goal was to revive a forgotten château with a prestigious terroir located next to the famous Châteaux La Lagune and Cantemerle.
Replanting the vineyard and rebuilding cellars have been a tremendous challenge to achieve the highest quality possible for Paloumey wines. After years of hard work, commitment and passion, the estate was brought back to life and now extends over 34 hectares. Always striving for excellence in winemaking and viticulture, Château Paloumey is know for its elegant style and is one
of the leading wines of the appellation.
"Ripe and fresh, another super effort from Madame Cazaneuve, the owner of Paloumey, we started buying this wine some 15 years ago, so the vines are on average 60 years old. They also have a star winemaker in Pascal Lamarque originally from Lynch Bages, fabulous value!"

"Dense and packed with fruit, this is a rich wine. It does have structured tannins but it is the juicy fruit that really dominates. It is concentrated and will develop quickly, but then should hold well.
(Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, April 2017)
"This has some good ripe cassis fruits and careful extraction. The tannins are a touch rustic, but this is a pleasurable medium term drinking wine from a highly reliable and good quality Médoc Cru Bourgeois. Authentic and ripe fruit expression.
