TASTING NOTES:

Wine Rating: RP 93 points
Drink by: 2015 - 2030


Another brilliant example from administrator Thomas Duroux and his team, the intense second wine, Palmer’s 2012 Alter Ego (51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot), offers up plenty of blackberry and creme de cassis notes along with some spring flowers, licorice and subtle background oak.
Opulently textured, full-bodied and stunning, this is an outrageously successful second wine to drink over the next 12-15 years.


“On a spring day in 1814, Lieutenant Colonel Palmer made the auspicious acquaintance of a young widow named Marie Brunet de Ferriere. Sharing a stagecoach ride across France, the noblewoman fell for the charms of the dashing soldier whose reputation for conquests – both military and romantic – already preceded him. By journey's end, she had agreed to sell him the Medoc vineyards she'd just inherited.

Without ever having visited, this son of a Bath brewer, aide-de-camp to the Prince Regent and future major general in the British Army, became the owner of domaine de Gascq. An estate renowned for the quality of its wines since the beginning of the 18th century. Charles Palmer spent 30 years enlarging and modernizing it, finally instilling it with such a timeless style, it would forever carry his name: Château Palmer."
