Chateau Palmer and its Alter Ego are the two wines produced by Chateau Palmer estate.  The estate is classified as a Third Growth of the Margaux appellation of Bordeaux.  Alter Ego made its debut with the 1998 vintage. The birth of Alter Ego coincided with the purchase of 8 hectares of vines, which became the heart and soul of Alter Ego.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Alter Ego De Palmer is a top quality wine and made from 53% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot.  Deep purple in the glass with concentrated blackberry and plum on the nose and palate as well as notes of leafy herbs, earth, and spice.  It is rich with fine grained tannins exhibiting a wonderful synergy of power and finesse.  

Method

Produced by the same team and from the same vineyards as Château Palmer, Alter Ego is literally the ‘other side’ of Palmer, another expression of Palmer. Alter Ego has the distinction and character of Palmer but is made to be drunk much earlier. Merlot is generally the dominant grape variety, making it supple and ready to open within 3 years of the harvest. A great wine with intense fruit, fresh and juicy.
