En Primeur Alter Ego de Palmer 2016 is now available for sale.
Second wine of Château Palmer which 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. 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.
“This is very concentrated yet soft and fresh in texture. Full-bodied and round and mouth-filling. So impressive how it fills your mouth yet remains fresh. It’s so framed.” – 95-96pts, James Suckling April 2017
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.
