Chateau Palmer Alter Ego de Palmer 2015
Wine EnthusiastPowerful tannins initially show in this perfumed wine. Behind them lie velvety-smooth black-currant fruit. The wine is pure, open and will age well over a medium term. It will be ready to drink from 2025.
Wine SpectatorWarm and inviting, with delightfully ripe plum and cassis notes that are lined with subtle lilac, fresh earth and singed sandal wood details before a wave of tobacco and humus comes in on the finish. Approachable, but should develop with time. Best from 2019 through 2029.
Wine AdvocateComposed of 52% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Alter Ego de Palmer has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and gorgeous nose of ripe plums, cassis and crushed cherries with touches of incense, lavender and chocolate box. Medium-bodied, very finely crafted and vivacious in the mouth, it finishes with great elegance and finesse.
