Alter Ego de Château Palmer Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Complex and velvety, with silky tannins and a delicious taste, this is how the “Alter Ego”, fascinating Rouge of Château Palmer presents itself.
This Margaux AOC is born from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, grown according to certified biodynamic methods. With a pleasant gustatory balance and marvelous fruity aromas, “Alter Ego” is a refined and complex wine of great depth, a lively expression of the different parcels and of the natural and genuine flavors of the grapes.

In 2019, the Merlots enjoyed dry and sunny weather conditions up to the very end, giving rise to wines full of power, exuberance and flesh. The Cabernets would develop a certain coolness and reserve, to produce wines of rare distinction. It is this uncommon marriage that has placed the two wines, Château Palmer and Alter Ego, in the rarefied circle of exceptional vintages.

Château du Tertre Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Château du Tertre takes its name from the superb group of graves, culminating point of the Margaux appellation, on which is erected the castle. This millennial property of 52 hectares (of which 18 are grown biodynamic) enjoys worldwide renown thanks to the prestigious Grand Cru Classé de Margaux title it has had since 1855.
The arrival of Eric Albada-Jelgersma, the current owner, in 1997 will profoundly mark the field. A restructuring program and heavy investments have restored its reputation to Château du Tertre. This program has resulted in upgrading technical equipment, reducing yields and setting up a new team. Under the direction of Alexander Van Beek ,Eric Boissenot for winemaking, the vineyard has significantly increased the quality of these wines, giving Château du Tertre its character and nobility, where silky and freshness are combined to bring you the elegance expected of a great Margaux wine.

I Giusti & Zanza Nemorino Red Toscana IGT

L’Elisir D’Amore is an Italian 19th century opera buffa by Gaetano Donizetti. It tells the story of the charlatan pharmacist Dulcamara whose “love filter”, in truth a bottle of Bordeaux, helps Nemorino conquer the heart of the beautiful Adina despite Belcore’s interference. A complex tale of ploys and passion, with the sweet tones of love and the bitter taste of jealousy – it offers a representation of wine as a powerful love filter that is fitting with the charming wisely-balanced intensity of I Giusti & Zanza wines.
The Red Nemorino’s composition varies slightly from vintage to vintage. It is primarily composed of Syrah (about 60%), with additions of Merlot and Sangiovese, as well as small shares of Alicante, according to the vintage.

The agricultural conduction is organic and biodynamic in the vineyards.
