The 2015 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a deep garnet-purple color and a broody, earthy/meaty nose over a core of crushed black currants, plum preserves and blackberry pie with hints of Indian spices and potpourri. The medium to full-bodied mouth displays a great core of rich black fruit flavors and a firm frame of ripe tannins plus seamless acid with a long, earthy finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(JL92-94 points) Deep in color with florals, black cherry liqueur, boysenberry and dark cocoa in the nose, this wine is rich, plump, full-bodied and voluptuous in texture with a wealth of ripe, sweet, fresh fruits and lush tannins in the mouth that really linger. The first vintage produced in the new cellars has elevated the estate to another level. Produced from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the wine reached 13% alcohol with a pH of 3.6 and is aging in 65% new, French oak barrels. With a new showcase cellar and a commitment to quality with a spare-no-expense attitude, this is a wine to watch.

This perhaps the best wine ever from here with a very powerful and rich body, yet it shows such polished and lively tannins. Chocolate, meat and spice undertones. Full and flavorful. Long finish. Drink in 2023.

Intense black cherry, blackberry, new leather, espresso and torrefaction flavors give the 2015 Marquis d'Alesme much of its sumptuous, flamboyant personality. Plush, modern and exotic in both its concentration and flavor profile, Marquis d'Alesme presents the more extroverted side of Margaux. All the elements are wonderfully fused together in a deep, expressive wine that will drink well for many years to come. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged in 65% new oak, it has a ripe, full-bodied, opulent mouthfeel, bright acidity, and a tight, concentrated personality that’s going to take time to come together. Give bottles 3-4 years and drink over the following 15-20.

This is broad and fleshy in feel, with smoldering tobacco, warm ganache and espresso notes that meld slowly into the core of steeped blackberry and black currant fruit. Shows a long tarry edge on the finish, with the fruit keeping pace. Rock-solid. Best from 2032 through 2035. — J.M.
