We always take advantage of the En Primeur campaigns such Chateaux as Chateau Lanessan, Chateau Ormes De Pez from St-Estephe, one of the original nine Cru Bourgeois Exceptionelle, Chateau Lalande De Borie from St-Julien, Chateau Fieuzal from Pessac-Leognan and the legendary Alter Ego De Palmer.

    Produced by the same team and from the same vineyards as Château Palmer, Alter Ego is literally the 'other side' of Palmer, another expression of Palmer.

Merlot is generally the dominant grape variety, making it supple and ready to open within 3 years of the harvest. A great wine with intense fruit, fresh and juicy.
