Marquis d'Alesme

Château Marquis d’Alesme is a third growth Margaux making enormous strides forward since its acquisition by the Perrodo family in 2006. It has become clear that Nathalie Perrodo, along with her talented winemaking team led by Marjolaine de Coninck, are fully realising the estate’s potential through the significant investment and improvements envisioned by her late father.

 

A very close neighbour of Château Margaux, Marquis d’Alesme occupies 15 hectares of breath-taking vineyards found on the Lieu-dit of Les Terrasses de Margaux. Characterised by gravel-rich soils mixed with sand, clay and limestone, the sun-exposed slopes are cooled by the nearby Gironde river, providing the perfect growing conditions for vines.

Marquis d'Alesme 2016 (1x600cl)

Talk about a gem in the vintage, I was blown away by the 2016 Château Marquis d'Alesme Becker on each of the three times I was able to taste it. This estate has been on an undeniable roll since the arrival of Marjolaine de Conicnck in 2009, and the 2016 is unquestionably the best yet. A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet Franc, brought up in 65% new French oak, its deep purple color is followed by an essence of Cabernet bouquet that includes loads of crème de cassis, blueberries, graphite, crushed rocks, sandalwood, and violets. Almost Saint Julien in style, this beauty is laser-focused on the palate, medium to full-bodied, brilliantly textured, and has a blockbuster finish. It deserves 4-5 years of bottle age and will keep for 25-30 years. Bravo!
