“This shows excellent body and depth of fruit. Rich and very deep. Layered and flavorful. Solid and chewy. Serious second wine. 92-93 points.” – James Suckling.
Alter Ego seems to grow in stature each year, following the trend for the ‘second’ wines from the great names to become serious wines in their own right. 53% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot.
Second wine of Château Palmer , itself 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. The vines cover a surface of 52 hectares made up of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Wines are matured for at least 18 months in oak barrel.
Offered for sale ‘En Primeur’, in bond. Price shown is per case (6x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine lands in the UK.
