2010 Chateau Palmer, 2010 Alter Ego, Pairs Purity, Elegance in Margaux


2010 Chateau Palmer, 2010 Alter Ego 2010 Bordeaux Wine review, tasting notes and ratings.

2010 Palmer From an assemblage of 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Petit Verdot, the wine reached 14.5% alcohol. The beautiful, deep, purple color is almost opaque.  Floral aromas are complicated with cassis, coffee, smoke, truffle, earth and boysenberry scents which jump from the glass.  With intense purity, tannins that feel like hand polished silk and a beautiful, pure, long, harmonious rich finish, there is not a hard edge to be found.  This opulent wine is a treat for the senses. 96-98 Pts

2010 Alter Ego 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Merlot offers blackberry, floral, cassis and bitter chocolate aromas. Powerful for Alter Ego, the wine ends with a smooth, fresh, refined finish. While the wine reached 14.4, there is no sensation of heat. 91-93 Pts
