Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is from the lieu-dit Les Terrasses de Margaux. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, and it has 14.5% alcohol. It is to be aged 18 months in 65% new and 35% two-year-old barrels. Deep purple-black in color, it leaps from the glass with bold, expressive black cherries, warm plums, crème de cassis and red roses scents with touches of baking spices, potpourri and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, rich and opulent, it completely fills the palate with hedonic black fruit preserves and spices, framed by firm, velvety tannins and finishing with fantastic length." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate (4/23/2019, Bordeaux 2018 Issue), Rating: 94-96 

"The 2018 Marquis d'Alesme is gorgeous. In 2018 Marquis d'Alesme is far more aromatically complex and more nuanced than it has been in the recent past. Sweet floral, savory and spice add striking layers of dimension. The fruit is especially vibrant, with none of the overextracted notes or heaviness that plagued some recent vintages. The 2018 is really impressive. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. I can't wait to taste it from bottle." - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, (April, 2019), Ratings: 92-95
