    Product description

    Château Palmer was classified as a third growth in 1855 but is today considered as a second. Being the second wine of the estate, Alter Ego receive the same care as its big brother.

    Deep nose with aromas of violet, dark cherry, leather and herbal notes. The palate is intense with some complexity

    “The Alter Ego 2010 has a well-defined, quite exuberant bouquet of dark cherries, boysenberry and cassis that blossom in the glass. There is just a hint of fresh dates emerging with aeration.” 92pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2013

    French still red wine from Margaux Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

  • About the producer

    Château Palmer was established in the first half of the nineteenth century by the English general, Charles Palmer. In 1814, on his way back from the Peninsular War where he had fought with Wellington against Napoleon, General Palmer acquired Chateau de Gascq in Margaux and gave it his own name. In 1938, the Sichel family joined forces with a group of wine merchant friends to purchase the property. Although Palmer was classified as a third growth in 1855 it is considered as a second.
