ALTER EGO DE PALMER 2012
MARGAUX 2ND WINE, GCC 3EME

93/100 -  2012 Vintage - ROBERT PARKER
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 crème 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.

90/100 - 2012 Vintage - Wine Spectator - Tasted: 31-Mar-2015
Shows good energy, with a lively savory note, a bright iron streak and enticing damson plum, black cherry and red currant fruit. Everything knits through the finish, suggesting this should be able to handle modest cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2020. 7,083 cases made.–JM

16.5/20 - 2012 Vintage - Jancis Robinson -When to drink: 2020 to 2030
Tasted blind. Light, low-key nose. Very neat with good savour. Just not very ample on the end but decent enough. Jancis Robinson - Tasted: 21-Jan-2016
