好在天气状况极佳的7月消除了花期后大多数藤蔓的不均匀性，转色期发生和结束的相当迅速。如此绝佳的天气 –阳光明媚但并不过分炎热，同时夜晚凉爽宜人– 一直持续而不中断的延续直到最后的收获时节。

2017 - 2030葡萄酒品鉴

« Offers a tarry frame melded to a core of plum sauce, tobacco and dark currant preserves. Fleshy and broad, with a good charcoal spine for freshness. Approachable now, but should improve with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2025." J.M »

« An equal-part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 Alter Ego represents 50% of the crop at Palmer. It has been an interesting second wine to take note of ever since the first vintage in 1998. The 2010 displays loads of chocolaty espresso notes, with plenty of punch, glycerin and unctuosity as well as some tannin like its bigger sister, but it is clearly meant to be drinkable at a much earlier age. It will still require several years of cellaring and should last 12-15 years.
There’s no question that Thomas Duroux and the staff at Palmer are producing wines of first-growth quality, and have been for nearly a decade. »

« Tasted at the château. The Alter Ego 2010 has a well-defined, quite exuberant bouquet of dark cherries, boysenberry and cassis that blossom in the glass. There is just a hint of fresh dates emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with an edgy, liquorice-tinged entry. It has a grainy texture, good depth, though needs just a little more refinement towards the finish. Tasted November 2012. »

« Sapidité, délice velouté, trame gourmande :
voici en quelques mots Alter Ego qui a aujourd’hui le niveau d’un grand cru classé de par sa matière magistrale et sa grande précision aromatique. »

« Rich, concentrated, well-structured, very good second wine. »
Vinifera, Jacques Perrin于 01/05/2011
« Il se caractérise par un style inhabituellement puissant, d'une très belle dynamique fruitée, et de superbes tanins veloutés. »

« Good fruit, red. Seems less voluptuous than last year but also more focused and with more tension, good tension. Mark Golodetz remarked that it will be a very long lived wine. Duroux said that the structure is more evident. In any case, a fine success for Alter Ego. »

« olour a great dark crimson, on the nose it was full of fruit, quite complex. Loads of fruit in the mouth, well structured, very nicely balanced. I'm sure that this is a wine that many chateaux would love to have as their Grand Vin. »
Wine Spectator, James Molesworth于 08/04/2011
« Velvety and inviting, with lovely dark plum and blackberry fruit, followed by a long, caressing finish. This has some grip too, but it's nicely integrated. Should have some staying power. Tasted non-blind. »

« 2010 Alter Ego 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Merlot offers blackberry, floral, cassis and bitter chocolate aromas.
Powerful for Alter Ego, the wine ends with a smooth, fresh, refined finish. While the wine reached 14.4, there is no sensation of heat. »
Cellar Blog, Allan LISKA于 07/04/2011
« The 2010 Alter Ego is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Merlot with an acidity level of 3.55. It is a very powerful vintage that is hard to compare to other vintages. Good black fruit aromas with great spiciness on the nose. The wine has a great acidity that blends well with the well-structured tannins and a good finish. »
Wine Mag, Roger Voss于 07/04/2011
« Ripe black currants and powerful fruit with great acidity and enticing dusty tannins. The wine brings out juicy Merlot flavors with a more concentrated element. »
www.winewordsandvideotape.com, Jeremy Palmer于 07/04/2011
« Deep; creamy ripe blackcurrants; pretty seductive; quite intense with grip, more grip on the palate. Freshness here, despite the 14.4 degrees alcohol. In fact pretty lively on the palate.
Great effort. »
Decanter, Steven Spurrier于 06/04/2011
« Fragrant wild violets nose, wonderful weight and texture, succulence and firmness, definitely not a 'second wine'.
Drink 2015-25. »

« It's the second wine that tastes about as good as any of the Margaux that i just tasted at the big Margaux UGC tasting (except Lascombes).
It's precise and powerful with juicy tannin. »

« Very dark purplish crimson. Markedly aromatic. Very lifted with a strong undertow. Racy and vibrant, just a little green note there and even orange peel. Great tension and even a little sucking-stone character. Much more structure than usual for Alter Ego. Certainly doesn’t taste hot.
Alter Ego is still theoretically made specifically to be drunk young but 2010 presented a challenge to this philosophy!
‘In a vintage like 2010, you cannot go against it,’ Thomas Duroux.
This tastes like a very smart wine off its own bat. A most unusual Alter Ego.

« this has a very tightly wound bouquet with dark cherries, cassis and a touch of liquorice. There is a very fine sense of definition at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with sturdy, firm tannins, layers of mocha-tinged dark berried fruit leading to a structured, quite spicy finish with gentle but insistent grip. Tasted March 2011. »

« Floral and blackberry and currant. Full to medium body. Round and velvety with chocolate and nuts.
A firm and structured Alter Ego. »

« Vin en dentelle avec du goût, un corps raffiné malgré le fort degré d'alcool (14,°9) et 82 d'IPT qui fond au palais et se boirait en l'état. Longueur normale. »
