Alter Ego de Palmer 2020 released

Alter Ego is the second wine at Chateau Palmer in Margaux. We have seen that a selection of ‘Super Seconds’ have started receive a cult following – and Alter Ego is one of those wines on that radar.

Although at time of writing, our benchmark critic Neal Martin has not scored this wine as Palmer did not send samples abroad, the wine has received solid scores from other critics.

Palmer adopt bio-dynamic practices – and production was hit again in 2020 by mildew pressure and the drought. Stock released is low and this is a wine which sees high demand.

Therefore we have taken small allocations here.
