Alter Ego de Château Palmer, Margaux, 2022

Tasting Note:

Made from a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot from the lighter gravel and sandy soils at Palmer. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the team here decided not to do soft extractions. They wanted to build a backbone so elected to go deep with their macerations. The result is dark and sultry Alter Ego with notes of liqueur fruits, brioche, graphite, bramble and plums. There's a lot of attack and some good definition, but it perhaps lacks the spark and energy of the vintage's most successful wines.
