All Vintages of this wine

2015 Alter Ego is a Margaux wine made with Merlot (52 %), Cabernet Sauvignon (42 %), Petit Verdot (6 %), grapes varieties which were harvested from 22nd september to 7th october. The Merlot were magnificent, aromatic and beautifully ripe. The Cabernet Sauvignon and the Petit Verdot followed, and were just as promising. The relatively high alcoholic content of the 2015 vintage is balanced out by a dense tannic structure without any rustic notes, thanks to perfect phenolic maturity of the pips and skins. At this time, this outstanding balance leads Palmer wine estate to believe that 2015 will be in line with recent great vintages, such as 2010, 2009 and 2005. Since 1945, only the 1965 vintage wasn’t up to the quality of the vintages ending in 5.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed 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.
