Ailes de Paloumey is the second wine of Chateau Paloumey. When, in 1989, Martine Cazeneuve took up the challenge to restore Château Paloumey’s reputation, it was a monumental task: there were no vines and no winery ! The Château, an early nineteenth century family house, was the only remnant of the property’s glorious past.
Her determination was rewarded in 2003 when the quality of the wines was recognized once again and Château Paloumey was promoted to the category of Crus Bourgeois Supérieur.
Since the 2008 vintage, Cru Bourgeois approval has been granted every year to Château Paloumey, and to Château La Garricq, made from our vines in Moulis-en-Médoc. This approval represents a welldeserved recognition of the quality of Vignobles Paloumey’s wines.
