Alter Ego de Palmer 2015


Op voorraad

Snel Overzicht

Alter Ego doet eigenlijk niet veel onder voor z'n grotere broer Château Palmer, maar is soepeler en kan eerder worden gedronken. Super elegante, fijne Margaux. De 2015 is gebotteld in augustus 2017, na te hebben gerijpt op 30% nieuw hout.

Jancis Robinson, januari 2019: "Tasted blind. Mid to dark crimson. Floral, aromatic, lifted. Sweet start. Pretty fine and appealing. Alter Ego? Satisfying. Very fresh." 17

Chris Kissack, Winedoctor, mei 2018: "I find delightful dark and glossy fruit on the nose, very finely defined black cherry stone, olives and a curranty concentration. It is perfumed, fresh, and confidently composed on the palate, fresh and bright, quite tense and strict, with a very well delineated composition. This is a very serious style, confident, easily the equivalent of Pavillon Rouge, if not superior. Savoury, finely grained, balanced and energetic even through the finish and length. It is exceptional quality for a second wine, so focused and balanced. Second wines I would actually buy come along only rarely, but this is certainly one of them. Truly impressive." 95

Antonio Galloni, Vinous, december 2017: "The 2015 Alter Ego is just as alluring today as it was from barrel. Sweet floral notes, spice, dried cherry, mint, tobacco and crushed flowers are all laced together in this silky, mid-weight Margaux. Time in barrel has mellowed some of the exuberance the 2015 showed from barrel. Open-knit, supple and super-expressive, Alter Ego is a winner. Time in the glass brings out aromatic presence of Cabernet Sauvignon." 92

Jane Anson, Decanter, november 2017: "This is still very tight, the focussed cassis fruits given further focus by slate and rosemary herbs. This is an exceptional second wine, one that shows the beauty of this vintage. Both Alter Ego and Palmer were bottled in August 2017 - a little later than is traditional at the property, to give the wines more time to build harmony after blending. But it probably explains why they are so closed up right now." 92
