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 collapse

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.

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. collapse

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. collapse

Shows a long tarry edge on the finish, with the fruit keeping pace. Rock-solid. Best from 2032 through 2035. — J.M. collapse

The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, good grip and fine acidity, fresh in the mouth and displaying surprising density and persistence on the finish. Still a superb Margaux with good aging potential. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse

The gorgeous violet edges bode well for the integrity and potential of the fruit. It has depth to it, and great texture teased out by winemaker Marjolaine Maurice de Coninck, with a silky quality to the tannins and a kick of spice from the 3% dash of Petit Verdot. 65% new oak, malolactic in barrel.

It's hard to believe that a stone's throw away from Chateau Margaux and Malescot, a 3rd growth chateau wasn’t really living up to its potential, but that was the narrative at Chateau Marquis d’Alesme ten years ago. Since 2006, the new team at this property, under the guidance of Michel Rolland, has flipped the narrative on its head, and the new era is bringing the goods: a triple 94pt Margaux and the property’s “best wine ever” (Suckling)! Now “on the right track” and “underpriced for a classified growth from Margaux” according to Robert Parker, this is a name to watch and the 2015 Chateau Marquis d’Alesme is a gorgeous and extroverted Margaux to stock up on!
