Alter Ego de Palmer Margaux France 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Alter Ego de Palmer 2007: Alcohol 12.5%, and 30% new oak, a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. The second wine, accounting for 50% of the harvest in 2007. A fresh and floral nose, slightly meaty, with a sandy mineral character. On the palate, a fresh and immediate stony quality, not fleshy but structured, with obvious tannins coming through. Fresh, gently textured, harmonious and sappy, with a clean finish. Available from July 2010

Chateau Palmer:
A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Château Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends.

A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Château Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends. To experience its timelessness, there is no better way than to taste it. Again and again. Finesse and elegance, typical of the great wines of Margaux, are the permanent trademarks of Château Palmer, characterized by the softness and refinement of silk, the warmth of velvet, and the leather of noblesse. The unusual combination of grape varieties – as much Merlot as Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Petit Verdot – gives Château Palmer a bouquet of extraordinary complexity, with fruit, flowers, and spice wrapped in a fleshy and generous structure. The subtle balance between aromatic richness and powerful yet always restrained tannins makes Palmer a wine of incomparable charm, even when very young. Its length leaves the persistent memory of a heady mix of sensations and emotions. Long barrel ageing is essential for Château Palmer to give full expression to its gravely soil and reveal all its body and flesh. This ageing continues very slowly for many years and even decades in the bottle. Your patience will be generously rewarded when you taste an old vintage. It exudes a particularly rich and complex aromatic finish, sometimes exotic, always unforgettable. Wine tasting is a meeting of two living bodies as they surrender to each other, the human being and the wine. Tasters always have expectations from the wine they choose: good wines meet them; Château Palmer exceeds them. Read less

49% Merlot, 44% cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Verdot. Small yields of only 34 hls/ha. The color is a dark purple and red garnet with full intensity. On the nose, there are black fruits followed by subtle cedar spice. The wine is not over oaked, but... Andy Frieden. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Chateau Palmer 750ml

Besticht durch ungemein komplexes Bukett aus Noten von Früchten, Blüten und Gewürzen, umhüllt von einer körperreichen und grosszügigen Struktur. Das subtile Gleichgewicht zwischen aromatischer Fülle und der zurückhaltenden Kraft der Tannine macht ihn auch bereits in jungen Jahren zu einem Wein von unvergleichlichem Charme.

Lovely aromas of blackberry and chocolate on the nose, following through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a clean and fresh finish. This represents 50 percent of the production in 2007. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Palmer Alter Ego 750ml
