Fresh perspectives from the men and women of Château Palmer about their work and the wines they produce. Stories of passion, curiosity and dedication… lessons of life.
Château Palmer, Margaux
The estate hums with life, welcoming, hosting, entertaining. At the centre of it all… a Japanese chef. For the last three years, Seiji Nagayama has been there for every Palmer moment, serving a cuisine fit for a château.
Winning the title of best sommelier in France and in Europe, and vice-champion sommelier in the world has not changed Éric Beaumard. He remains a cheerful and frank go-getter unafraid to stick to his principles: finding wines that speak the truth.
To converse together with him, standing among the vines of Château Palmer, it takes but a few minutes to realize the obvious: Thomas Duroux is a man perfect harmony with his surroundings, the estate he has run since 2004.
