Alter-Ego-de-Palmer-Margaux-2016

Alter Ego de Palmer, (Margaux), 2016

2016 Bordeaux Future
“The 2016 Alter Ego de Palmer is a blend of 40% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot this year (a little less Merlot than usual). That exuberant Merlot drives the aromatics along, almost citrus-like with scents of blood orange and blueberries soaring from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry, quite sharp acidity at first, quite structured for an Alter Ego with a grippy finish. I think the new oak will bind this together, this sample coming from a used barrel.” -Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (89-91 Points)
