Full-bodied, tight and focused — in part thanks to sensational tannin tension that is intense yet polished. Needs five to six years of bottle age to come together. Great second wine of Palmer.

Powerful tannins initially show in this perfumed wine. Behind them lie velvety-smooth black-currant fruit. The wine is pure, open and will age well over a medium term. It will be ready to drink from 2025.

Loaded with notes of black cherries, cassis, scorched earth and hints of toasty oak all emerge from this full-bodied, ripe, yet beautifully balanced Margaux. With ripe tannin, solid mid-palate depth and ample sweet fruit, it shows the charm of the vintage and is already hard to resist, yet should keep for 10-15 years.

Approachable, but should develop with time. Best from 2019 through 2029. — JM

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.

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...   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. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
