2017 Alter Ego de Château Palmer, Margaux

A fine nose with lift, energy and purity. There's explosive blue fruit and very fine, lovely tannins. Beautiful, lacy acidity carries it through to precise, crystalline fruit.

TASTING NOTES

This shows excellent body and depth of fruit. Rich and very deep. Layered and flavorful. Solid and chewy. Serious second wine.
