Alter Ego de Palmer 2011
• Domaine: Château Palmer
• A.O.C.: Margaux
• Classification: Second Wine, Third Growth, 3ème Grand Cru Classé in 1855
Alter Ego de Palmer is the second wine of Château Palmer, which is located next to the famous First Growth estate of Château Margaux.
"The draconian selection process has resulted in a delicious second wine, the 2011 Alter Ego de Palmer. It boasts plenty of plum, black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of vanillin and earth. Medium-bodied and supple, it can be drunk early on, but should evolve for 15 or more years. Drink now-2020.
Winemaker Thomas Duroux continues to fine tune this already brilliant estate, producing first-growth quality wines year after year." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/29/2014, Issue 212), Ratings: 89, Drink: 2014-2020
