Alter Ego de Palmer is the second wine from the illustrious Margaux third growth Château Palmer which was first produced in 1998. The owners believe that Alter Ego is a wine in its own right, being made with grapes from separate plots and with a somewhat different blend than Ch. Palmer itself. In addition the temperature at which it is fermented is lower than for Palmer itself and lasts for two weeks instead of three. As a result Alter Ego de Palmer is a fruitier wine. Many critics have suggested that were there to be a new classification of Bordeaux estates then Alter Ego would be well worth fourth growth status.

In its youth it was a plump, fleshy wine with plenty of fruit but lacking the complexity of the first wine. It is now fully mature with a very well-developed bouquet and is sure to be of interest to the lover of mature red Bordeaux.
