    Bordeaux lovers would be hard pressed to find a better deal on a top appellation wine than 2016 Marquis D’Alesme. Already a darling of the critics with a price that has not at all caught up, this blend has a rich profile of sweet black cherries, pie crust, licorice and mint with ripe, grippy tannins and a very long, bright finish. This is truly winemaker Marjolaine Maurice-de-Coninck’s chef d’oeuvre, and I’ve already set aside ample space in my cellar for it.

    What a brilliant wine. The team at Marquis d'Alesme are making wines to rival some of the champions of Margaux, and doing so at a fraction of the price. Deep, rich, and structured, there is brilliant acidity that lifts the fruit (cassis, black cherry) and keeps the finish going on for 30+ seconds. It is amazing that they are able to deliver a wine from a vintage like this, and a major appellation to boot, for such a modest price tag. This is an ascendant property and their 2016 is one to get in early and watch it develop over the next 20 years.

    2016 Marquis d’Alseme is 70% CS, 30% M, 10% PV. Framed by a super bright, effusive nose of sweet blackberry and blueberry that floats briskly across the palate, this is firm, pure and fresh, linear and so attractive! 2 Stars for the first time!

    The aromas are of sweet flowers and raspberry cream with cedar shavings. The middle is creamy, rich and very fresh with a long finish of very fine grip. This is an elegant bargain with wonderful depth of flavor, great texture and fantastic purity.

    The second great value made by the Labegorce team. This one is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon so it is much more masculine than the elegant Labegorce. Intense aromatics of rose pedals and cassis. Very concentrated on the palate, but still ripe and round texture. The big tannins are hidden by all of the fruit. Big wine-ager. A steal at this low price.
