General information


Chateau Paloumey is a wine from Bordeaux,region of France ,Bordeaux vineyard is covering almost all the Gironde department is known for the excellent environment for growing wines. This vineyard offers a wide wine assortment with very specific characteristics. The Garonne river defines the main sub-division of the region. On the right bank, the regions of Blaye-Libournais and Entre-Deux-Mers. On the left bank, Graves, Medoc and Sauterne.


Chateau Paloumey is located in Bordeaux's sub-region of Haut-Medoc ,The Haut-Medoc is located in the south of Medoc appellation. It produces only red wines and is the cradle of 6 renowned appellations: Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe. On a soil composed of limestone and clay, the dominant grape is Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot with a smaller proportion of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. These wines have a good aging potential. Young, Haut-Medoc wines are very tannic, some cannot be drink before some years of cellaring. With ages they offer a flexible development and produces complex aromatic bouquet of red fruits.


  • Cabernet Sauvignon(63%)  
    One of the most cultivated grape variety in the world. Often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it is grown in nearly every wine producing country, thanks to its hardy constitution. It can be identified by its thick skin and some low yields. In a blend, Cabernet-Sauvignon brings tannins, structure and acidity, which are the keys to a perfect aging process. Californian Nappa Valley has espacially well worked this varietal, which is the main factor of its extrordinary recognition and success. Known for its vegetal flavors such as mint and eucalyptus, Cabernet Sauvignon can turn a wine with herbaceous dominances if harvested too green.
  • Merlot(37%)  
    It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.


The 2011 summerlike spring, exceptionally hot and dry, allowed buds to blossom and develop in the best conditions possible until flowering. At that stage, we were almost three weeks early compared to previous vintages. August showers were undoubtedly welcome to relieve vineyards suffering from water stress: the 2011 earliness was reduced. Searching for the perfect maturity and making the right decisions regarding harvest dates were crucial because of the grapes’ heterogeneity and the grey rot’s threat. Harvest took place without a drop of rain. Thanks to the double sorting system (both mechanical and manual) set up at the reception of grapes, we kept a ripe, healthy and homogenous crop.


The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes did particularly reach a beautiful balance and a great complexity. This new 2011 vintage is characterized by deep colors, intense aromas of black fruit, tannins and freshness.
