Size: 750ml

The palate is more reserved than the bouquet suggests: saturated tannins, a little chewiness on the entry but suppler towards the finish. It feels very linear in keeping with the style of the vintage, the finish a little sweet than its peers with a dab of licorice on the aftertaste

Description

Description
The 2014 Alter Ego of Chateau Palmer is a charming, smooth, round, structured and complex wine. The harvest took place from September 22nd and October 14th, in excellent conditions.
 
Spontaneity. That sudden desire to indulge without delay, Château Palmer wished to gratify. Thus, while remaining true to its philosophy, another expression of its terroir came to be. Since the 1998 vintage, a new approach to selection and blending has yielded this supple and rounded wine, distinguished by its freshness of fruit, crisp intensity and richness…from the moment out of barrel, it's all that’s natural, bottled.
Tasting Notes

Blend Ratio (Estimate): 52% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot

It has an opulent, glossy bouquet with layers of small dark cherries and plenty of glycerin.
