Jeb Dunnuck
Under the helm of Marjolaine de Coninck and consultant Michel Rolland, this estate has been on fire, and their 2018 Château Marquis d'Alesme Becker might just be the best yet. Comprised of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aging in 65% new oak, this deeply colored Margaux offers a thrilling bouquet of crème de cassis, high-class smoke tobacco, graphite, and earth. Full-bodied, pure, beautifully concentrated, and structured, it has a backward, primordial feel and is going to need a solid 7-8 years of bottle age, but it’s a brilliant Margaux readers should snatch up! Tasted twice.
Barrel Sample: 95-97

Wine Spectator
Plush and enticing, with a caressing feel to the layers of blueberry, raspberry and blackberry puree flavors. Light black tea and mesquite accents add cut and range on the finish. Long and gorgeous.
Barrel Sample:93-96
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
Barrel Sample: 94-96
JS 95
James Suckling
This is a wonderful wine with dark berries, wet earth and dark tea. Full body, firm and striking tannins and a long, flavorful finish.
Barrel Sample:94-95
D 94

Good stuff from winemaker Marjolaine de Coninck: there's a creamy sweetness through the palate, with patisserie notes joining the dark fruit impact of the Cabernet. It's well balanced and rich, with tannins that build fairly rapidly from the mid-palate onwards - you can feel their impact but they support rather than crush. Fermentation temperature was kept to 26°C to ensure gentle extraction, nicely combining the clear pleasure of this wine with a sense of elegance.

A Grand Cru Classe since 1855, Marquis d’Alesme contributes to the history and reputation of Margaux in its own special way. Ever since the eighteenth century, Marquis d’Alesme has made Bordeaux a place of culture and passion. The Marquis’ fascination for Chinese art and the long sea voyages of Jean Bekker-Teerlink forged a strong taste for the exotic and the cosmopolitan, while a love of beauty and botany led to the creation of landscaped gardens.

Ultimately, Marquis d’Alesme has always been driven by the idea that a great wine is an inspired work of art. Each vintage is a result of the purest vine-growing tradition, yet Bordeaux has never seemed so exotic.

This wine is full of character and brings the Orient and the West together. Dragon scales and moon gates stand alongside columns and arcades in perfect harmony. A sea of vines stretches out towards the Rising Sun on the horizon.

Marquis d’Alesme offers a highly unusual winetasting experience, where the pleasure of the senses vies with aesthetic enjoyment. A dreamlike utopia begins to emerge.

A Grand Cru becomes an experience… LA FOLIE D’ALESME.
