A super fresh and expressive nose with a wealth of ripe red and dark plums, as well as blackberries and cassis, with subtle cedar and bracken complexity. The palate has a deeply rich, long and assertive style with a deep-set, flavorful and structured finish. Classically styled with great depth. Second wine of Château Palmer. Try from 2023.

This richly structured and tannic wine offers dark fruit and ripe tannins. The second wine of Château Palmer, it’s full of black-plum and dense berry flavors balanced by the acidity and the structure. Age this wine and drink from 2023.
There was a rough 60/40 split in terms of Palmer to Alter Ego in 2016 because it was a concentrated vintage and so suited the Palmer style - an interesting insight into how they blend. This is a little stricter than the typical Alter Ego, the pure and rich cassis fruit hitting you straight away, but the seduction comes through after a few moments in the glass, when ripe damson and grilled almonds appear. It has lovely freshness, and such a different fruit expression to the 2015 (which I tasted last week, so it's fresh in my mind). The 2015 was more generous, whereas here there's a clearer floral, violet edge. It may take a little longer than usual to really lay meat on the bones, but this is clearly going to reward patience.

The 2016 Alter Ego is cut from the same cloth as the grand vin, just less intense, with beautiful cassis fruits, notes of spring flowers, spice, and cedar pencil. A lovely, elegant wine, it has some similarities to the 2010, yet is ever so slightly more elegant, with softer tannins. Drink this beauty any time over the coming 20 years or more.
90 Wine Spectator
Features an overt core of ripe plum and blackberry confiture flavors, lined with cocoa and fresh humus hints. A lacing of singed alder in the background helps harness the fruit, with cassis bush and licorice snap notes checking in on the finish. Drink now through 2030.
