- Tasting Notes
The draconian selection process has resulted in a delicious second wine, the 2011 Alter Ego de Palmer. It boasts plenty of plum, black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of vanillin and earth. Medium-bodied and supple, it can be drunk early on, but should evolve for 15 or more years.

Fully saturated purple-ruby. Perfumed, sexy nose of fresh blackcurrant, cinnamon and aromatic herbs. Suave, dense and sweet, with ripe blackberry and cassis flavors complicated by bright minerality. This is the second time petit verdot was used in Alter Ego: director Thomas Duroux told me that because he found it less structured than usual this year but very aromatic, he thought it was ideal for the estate’s second wine.
