Other Reviews....
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.

Neal Martin - Vinous

A big, juicy red with lots of blackberry and chocolate character to the fruit, as well as juicy and chewy tannins. It shows plenty of backbone and stuffing.

I've been thoroughly enjoying the work that they are doing at Marquis d'Alesme in recent vintages and this very much continues the success. Sappy, juicy, well defined raspberry and blackberry fruits, concentrated in all the right places, with a saline finish that is both mouthwatering and moreish. Winemaker Marjolaine de Coninck has steered the property through the heat of the summer and got the balance just right. Harvest September 26 to October 12.
