This is the second wine of Château Palmer. It is always very smooth and supple thanks to a high proportion of Merlot in the blend. In 2023 Alter Ego is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot.

The 2023 Alter Ego is plump, juicy and super-expressive. Soft, silky tannins enshroud a core of plum, red cherry, spice, menthol and mocha. All the elements are so nicely balanced. A burst of red-toned fruit and spice lingers on a finish lifted by bright acids. This is such a sensual Alter Ego. 2028-2043
93-95 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

Wafting from the glass with pure aromas of cherries, berries, plums and potpourri, the 2023 Alter Ego de Palmer is medium to full-bodied, bright and vibrant, with a vigorous core of fruit framed by supple tannins.
92-94 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

Gorgeous nose, so full, voluptuous, intensely aromatic, violets, blackcurrants, damsons, cherries, plums, tobacco and liquorice and cedar spice. Balanced, relatively lean but still juicy, certainly full and intense but streamlined ending on a real graphite and wet stone note. I like this, feels a real mix of ripe and cool with freshness on the finish.
93 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.

Vivid ruby plum colour, great depth of flavour, balancing spiced plum, fennel, rosemary and anis with juicy blackberry and damson fruit, all delivered with a caress of floral aromatics and well-paced momentum. This is a structured Alter Ego that stretches out through the palate, with a kick on the finish.
93 Jane Anson.
