Alter Ego de Palmer 2012
• 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.
"Another brilliant example from administrator Thomas Duroux and his team, the intense second wine, Palmer’s 2012 Alter Ego (51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot), offers up plenty of blackberry and crème de cassis notes along with some spring flowers, licorice and subtle background oak. Opulently textured, full-bodied and stunning, this is an outrageously successful second wine to drink over the next 12-15 years." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/29/2015, Issue 218), Ratings: 93, Drink: 2015-2030
