Bordeaux 2021: Château Palmer & its Alter Ego
24 May 2022

Sometimes our tastings at Château Palmer leave us a little perplexed. This certainly wasn’t the case with the 2021; we totally get this wine. It’s sheer magic, and in our opinion one of the best wines of the Médoc (a view backed up by most if not all the critics). Alas, yields of just 22 hl/ha will ensure this is in short supply, so we advise followers of Palmer to get their skates on! This is not a wine you’ll want to miss. Powerful and virile, yet sophisticated and poised, this is one of the most texturally interesting, most layered, most alluring wines of the vintage. We really can’t remember a more impressive showing from barrel. Alter Ego was a precursor to Palmer. Some lesser plots were damaged by frost, so the blend here is Cabernet dominant (60%). Again, this is one of the most cohesive and striking Alter Egos we can recall tasting.
