Version Française Assemblage : 52% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot

Le Figaro Vin, 2018 : 17/20

Deuxième millésime en biodynamie. La robe est noire. Le nez est épicé et frais, mentholé. Le vin est élégant, d’une belle densité, de la fraîcheur, du fond, joliment épicé. Il a été élaboré avec 52% merlot, 42% cabernet-sauvignon, 6% petit-verdot. Il titre 14°, le rendement est 37 hl/ha et Alter Ego représente 50% du vin produit.

JM Quarin

Ma meilleure note donnée à ce cru en primeur à égalité avec le 2009. Couleur sombre, intense et belle. Nez fin et puissant, à la jolie note de prune. Bouche ronde, juteuse, savoureuse, évoluant moelleuse et parfumée. C'est un grand délice à la douceur tactile superbe. Incrachable.

English Version Blend: 52% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot

Neal Martin, March 2018: 91/100

The 2015 Alter Ego de Palmer is a blend of 52% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Like the grand vin, this was bottled in late August/early September. The bouquet has certainly dispensed with the precocity that it demonstrated in barrel, now more refined with pure blackberry, blueberry and violet scents, precise and very focused, the new oak very well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a crisp line of acidity, lightly spiced (clove and black pepper) with just the right amount of plushness toward the winsome finish. Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2036.

James Suckling,, February 2018: 96/100

This is sensational, characterized by such purity and beauty and with aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate, walnuts, cedar and lavender. Full-bodied, tight and focused — in part thanks to sensational tannin tension that is intense yet polished. Needs five to six years of bottle age to come together. Great second wine of Palmer.

Jancis Robinson MW,, April 2016: 16,5/20

Very rich on the nose. Very sweet and with sufficient freshness. Very very round. Just on the right side of soupy - but you really have to drink this pretty young, I think.

Château Palmer-3ème Grand Cru Classé en 1855-Appellation Margaux
Château Palmer

In 1814, as the Napoleonic era came to an end, Major General Palmer of the British army acquired the property that was to bear his name, from a certain Jeanne de Gasq. Over the next four decades, the General invested his fortune in Palmer, extending the property by buying plots of neighbouring vineyards and creating a truly exceptional wine. By the time Palmer was sold to the Péreire banking brothers in 1853, it was a fitting testimony to the General's passion and commitment to exceptional winemaking.

The new owners were no less remarkable. These far-sighted 19th century entrepreneurs participated in the reconstruction of Paris under the direction of Haussmann and Napoleon III, the creation of a seaside resort near Bordeaux - Arcachon - and the ownership of a railway company. In addition, they invested heavily in Chateau Palmer, commissioning renowned architect Burguet in 1856 to build the elegant Cháteau distinguished by its unmistakable towers.
