Château Palmer was classified as a third growth in 1855 but is today considered as a second. The vineyards are mainly planted with Merlot, unusual for the right bank, giving the wine a seductive and silky texture.
Alter Ego, the second wine, receive the same care as its big brother. Complex and deep nose with aromas of violet, dark cherry, leather and herbal notes. The palate is intense with a smooth texture and a good length.
A super fresh and expressive nose with a wealth of ripe red and dark plums, as well as blackberries and cassis, with subtle cedar and bracken complexity. The palate has a deeply rich, long and assertive style with a deep-set, flavorful and structured finish. Classically styled with great depth. Second wine of Château Palmer.
