Product Description

Alter Ego - the other Palmer. This wine from the vineyards of Château Palmer was first produced in the 1998 vintage, the result of a new approach to selecting and blending. The purpose is to make two different wines at Château Palmer that are both fully in keeping with the values and reputation of this great estate: finesse and elegance, a rich bouquet, and balance and length. Palmer and Alter Ego are both subtle reflections of Château Palmer's terroir, two interpretations of the growing conditions in a given vintage. Alter Ego is intensely fresh and fruity, juicy and irresistible. Smooth and round as soon as it has finished barrel ageing, Alter Ego's elegant bouquet and tannins can be appreciated within the first few years of bottling. Palmer combines aromatic complexity, length, and power. It has excellent structure and balance, invariably displaying legendary elegance and finesse.
