2020 Chateau Palmer 3eme Cru Classe, Margaux 6x75cl

JR18+RP97VM96-98WE98
"The 2020 Palmer, which was matured in 65% new oak, possesses one of the most perfumed bouquets of the vintage with entrancing, seductive scents of black cherries, wild strawberry, iodine and crushed... violets, all beautifully delineated (as per usual). The palate is medium-bodied with fine but quite firm tannins, lending this Palmer more backbone than presupposed. Blackberry, graphite and touches of liquorice develop with aeration that build towards an assertive, pencil box-tinged finish that nods towards Pauillac. This is a Palmer destined for long-term ageing, so readers should have a cool damp cellar handy. It is a serious Palmer, very different from the previous two vintages, not a mix of the two, but content in just being itself." 96-98 pts. Neal Martin, www.vinous.com

2022 Alter Ego de Palmer Margaux 6x75cl

JA93
"Dense fruits, violet reflections, with a hit of iris, peony and roses. This is a serious wine, with intense phenolics and full extraction that just walks the line, edges of ripe cassis, fig, saffran... spice, cocoa bean, grilled campfire notes, dark bitter chocolate and fennel. High drama, maintains estate signature, keeping its own imprint and personality. Harvest September 7 right through to October 5. Blend done by December, yield 23hl/h. 3.73ph. Thomas Duroux director." 92 points, jane Anson, www.janeanson.com

2021 Alter Ego de Palmer Margaux 6x75cl

VM92-94
"Palmer’s 2021 Alter Ego is fabulous. Dense and rich in the glass, with positively explosive energy, the 2021 dazzles from start to finish. A rush of dark cherry, plum, spice, blood orange,... menthol, and licorice infuses the palate with tremendous intensity. Hints of rose petal and pomegranate appear later to round things out. The 2021 possesses tremendous textural richness that is evident from the very first taste. The aromatics alone are especially present today.” 92-94 pts, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2020 Alter Ego, Margaux 6x75cl

DE93JR17+
This exuberant, fruit-driven delight is a near 50/50% assemblage of cabernet sauvignon and merlot with a dash of petit verdot and shows great purity with a structure slightly exceeding those of previous vintages. Therefore, a perfect drinking claret and one quite comfortable spending some good years in your cellar.
