From a Margaux estate that has been firing on all cylinders, the 2019 Château Marquis d'Alesme Becker is another winner. Bright, juicy notes of black cherries, framboise, and cassis give way to more spicy oak, chocolate, and dried flower notes. This beauty is medium to full-bodied and has a plush, sexy texture, notable freshness and purity, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's one of those pretty, elegant wines that still packs rocking levels of fruit.
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. (NM)
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. (JA)
The 2019 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, harvested from the 26th of September to the 12th of October. It has an alcohol of 14% and is being aged in French oak barrels, 50% new. Very deep purple-black colored, it charges out of the gate with bold notions of baked blackberries, warm cassis and plum preserves plus hints of dried Provence herbs, cracked black pepper, woodsmoke and hoisin. The medium-bodied palate has bags of freshness and a ripe, grainy-textured frame supporting the generous black fruits, finishing long and savory. (LPB)
