Chateau Palmer 'Alter Ego' 2004 Margaux

A big thanks to my sometime co-blogger Tom for bringing this over. It's on offer at Sainsbury's for just under £30. This is the second wine of Chateau Palmer, a third-growth Bordeaux.

The full price of almost £45 is over-inflated, as it can be obtained for about £35, but to be able to pick up a single bottle for this price is convenient.

It's a lovely wine. Lush fruit-driven, good structure. Cedar mainly, a bit floral. Long finish. Complex and elegant. If you want to splash out, this is a good bet.
