2012 Margaux from Bordeaux

Chateau Palmer’s Second Wine, Alter Ego de Palmer, impresses with outstanding consistency which reflects subtle expressions of Margaux soils. The 2012 Alter Ego de Palmer is 51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 9% Petit Verdot.

The vintage displays an intense and superb dark hue. The nose reveals subtle fruity scents of spices and soil. The palate offers melting flavours of leather, dark berries, and raspberry. Tannins boast extraordinary finesse and lead to a long finish. Chateau Palmer presented a sumptuous medium-bodied, fleshy vintage from Margaux appellation.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
