The second wine of Ch. Palmer is really aromatic in 2015, a hallmark of this great commune in Bordeaux, but something which always seems to be taken to the next level at this historic estate.

One of the top second wines, Alter Ego is lush and approachable, with red fruit dominant on the nose. The wine almost has its own identity now, one of the greatest compliments we can pay it. Beautifully fine tannins surround a mighty, meaty, focused core of fresh, ripe, crunchy fruit and a creamy texture. Very good indeed, the length is quite astonishing. Really enticing and attractive, this is a real triumph indeed.

Blend: 52% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot
