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)

Jeb Dunnuck (96)

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!

Wine Advocate (92-94)

Blended of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is very deep purple-black in color with lovely baked plums, black forest cake and tapenade notes with suggestions of grilled meat and wild thyme. The palate is medium-bodied and intense with very firm, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing with great length and depth.

Marquis d'Alesme 2018 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (97)

A rock star Margaux that should be snatched up by readers, the 2018 Château Marquis D'Alesme reveals a dense purple hue as well as ripe, sexy notes of blackcurrants, spicy oak, tobacco leaf, earth, and cedar. Deep, full-bodied, and gorgeously concentrated, it has velvety tannins, a layered, mouthcoating texture, and a great finish. It's a baby, but wow, what a wine. Hide bottle for 5-7 years if you can (you'll be forgiven for opening a bottle early) and it's going to evolve for 30-40 years.

Marquis d'Alesme 2019 (6x75cl)

Vinous (94-96)

The 2019 Marquis d'Alesme Becker was picked from 26 September to 12 October and matures in 50% new oak. It has a clean and pure bouquet with blackberry, briary, cedar and subtle floral notes - very Margaux and enticingly understated in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly grainy entry, a very well structured wine with a sappy finish that gets the saliva flowing. Superb.
