Behind every great wine is a great terroir. This is also the case with Château Palmer, which is located on a long strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the mouth of the Gironde. The land is well drained, rich in the deposits of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, but washed clean of organic matter. It is difficult soil for agriculture, but exceptional for grape cultivation. Of course, the vines also need good care to perform optimally. And that is certainly entrusted to the employees of Château Palmer! Full of passion and love for the vines, they cultivate the demanding terroir. The men and women of this winery are more than just colleagues. Together they embrace the common core values of Château Palmer and are therefore extremely dynamic, curious, passionate, open-minded and determined. In short, they live for and with the vineyards.

The 2020 Palmer Alter Ego by Château Palmer from Margaux is composed of 51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot. The Alter Ego d is deep garnet purple in color and comes out of the glass with vibrant black raspberries, black cherries and crushed black currants, plus hints of black and white pepper, menthol, pencil and cardamom. Medium-bodied, very elegant for a Margaux. The palate is charged with energy, with expressive, bright black fruit and firm, fine-grained tannins, ending long and lively. Certainly does not need as many years as its big brother before it is ready to drink and can certainly be stored in the cellar until 2040.
