WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2003
This is super for a second wine. Fantastic aromas of chocolate berry and coffee. Yet very classy and subtle. Full-bodied with a reserved rich and caressing texture. Loads of ripe and wonderful fruit in this. Second wine... This is super for a second wine. Fantastic aromas of chocolate berry and coffee. Yet very classy and subtle.

Label

Alter Ego is a different, nuanced expression of the Chateau Palmer terroir. Born with the 1998 vintage, Alter Ego resulted from a new approach to selecting and blending, intended to interpret the Chateau Palmer terroir differently without departing from the values that make the reputation of the estate’s wines – namely, finesse and elegance, aromatic richness, harmony and length.

Made in roughly the same volume as Chateau Palmer, Alter Ego spends less time in oak, just 16 to 18 months, and only 25% to 40% of the wood is new.

Offering intense, crispy and juicy fruits, Alter Ego is a spontaneous uninhibited wine, soft and round as soon as it has finished barrel aging. Its lush aromas and supple tannins make it a wine that can be appreciated in the first years after bottling.
