Château Paloumey has belonged to Martine Cazeneuve and the François Charles Oberthur firm since 1990. Situated in the Haut-Médoc, its soil is made up of gravel and the vines span more than 34 hectares. Although classed as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932, the Château had gradually fallen into disrepair; the vines were thus replanted, and the winery rebuilt. Today, we can see that this significant challenge was brilliantly met: the wines are sought after for their elegance and their finesse.
About the cuvée
This wine from Château Paloumey will seduce you with its complex bouquet of fruits and spices. The mouth is fleshy, balanced, fruity and fresh with good length and an ample feel. Enjoy with meat dishes. As for the winemaking, the grapes are handpicked (unless the parcel permits the use of a machine) and sorted before undergoing parcel by parcel vinifications in thermoregulated vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in oak barriques (30% new). Elevage lasts one year in barriques with a third new French oak.

These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
