Alter Ego de Palmer 2015

$299.00 per bottle

Stock: Available

Alter Ego was born with the 1998 vintage. It resulted from a new approach to selecting and blending devised to interpret the Château Palmer terroir differently without departing from the values that make the reputation of our wines – namely, finesse and elegance, aromatic richness, harmony and length.

Alter Ego was born with the 1998 vintage. It resulted from a new approach to selecting and blending devised to interpret the Château Palmer terroir differently without departing from the values that make the reputation of our wines – namely, finesse and elegance, aromatic richness, harmony and length.

Offering intense, crispy and juicy fruits, Alter Ego is a spontaneous uninhibited wine, soft and round as soon as it has finished barrel ageing. Its lush aromas and supple tannins make it a wine that can be appreciated in the first years after bottling.

96 This is sensational, characterised by such purity and beauty and with aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate, walnuts, cedar and lavender. Full-bodied, tight and focused — in part thanks to sensational tannin tension that is intense yet polished. Needs five to six years of bottle age to come together. Great second wine of Palmer.

91 The 2015 Alter Ego de Palmer is a blend of 52% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Like the grand vin, this was bottled in late August/early September. The bouquet has certainly dispensed with the precocity that it demonstrated in barrel, now more refined with pure blackberry, blueberry and violet scents, precise and very focused, the new oak very well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a crisp line of acidity, lightly spiced (clove and black pepper) with just the right amount of plushness toward the winsome finish. Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2036.
