2020, Alter Ego De Palmer
Palmer, 3ème Cru Classé

Exclusive agency or direct allocations

"With its deep, dark colour, Alter Ego’s robe is like a glimpse of glistening summer grapes, bursting with sunshine. We are almost surprised by the panoply of aromas that follow, a delightful blend of berry fruits, spicy flowers and fresh, subtly minty herbs. The texture is massive but soon fades into a silkiness which is the calling card of Palmer’s terroir. Another great Palmer wine with a decidedly bright future ahead of it.

Blend
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot"

- Winemaker's notes

"Chocolate shavings and smoked coffee bean on the nose, it's a vintage where you can't get away from the tannins, but here they have sinew and juice, like the best translation of the tannins in the year. This has real purity of fruit (very low SO2 addition at Palmer), together with the gourmet touch that you want in Alter Ego. 45% of overall production. 3.73pH. Survived mildew better than in 2018 because of experience in dealing with the conditions. August 15 to 29 for the harvest. A yield of 31hl/ha."

"50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot. Cask sample.
Very much in the Alter Ego mould – lively, fruit-driven with that vineyard-fresh feel but with a little more structure than previous years. Pure and appetising but will age. (JL) 13.7%"
