An Evening with Château Palmer & Thomas Duroux

We welcome you to join us for an evening with Château Palmer and CEO Thomas Duroux. Since 1938, Château Palmer has distinguished itself as one of Bordeaux’s leading grand crus.


Duroux was 34 when he took over from Bertrand Bouteiller as CEO of Château Palmer in 2004. A professional agronomist and oenologist, he brought with him 10 years of experience in the making of great wines around the world: in Bordeaux, Hungary, South Africa, California and Tuscany. Back in his native region, he could concretize a new vision for the grands crus of Bordeaux.

A master of equilibrium, always seeking greater depth, elegance and refinement for Château Palmer wines, Duroux brings to his task not only impeccable taste, experience and respect for an unequalled tradition but also youth, a spirit of independence and a talent for invention and innovation.
