With a pleasant gustatory balance and marvelous fruity aromas, “Alter Ego” is a refined and complex wine of great depth, a lively expression of the different parcels and of the natural and genuine flavors of the grapes.

The 2017 vintage at Château Palmer was precise, without excess. The wines exhibit the elegant balance of the most classic vintages. Their velvety tannins and aromatic depth are promises of splendid ageing potential.
