(WA92-94 points) The 2016 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc cropped between 4-24 October and matured in 65% new oak. It has a tight and focused bouquet, well defined but less generous than its peers: blackberry, briary, a touch of limestone and cedar aromas gently unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture, very harmonious with superb depth, perhaps demonstrating more roundness and opulence than its peers with a very concentrated finish where I would just like to see more finesse come through. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, April 2017
(WS91-94 points) Fresh, with a pure beam of cassis, flecked with singed alder, dried anise and lilac notes. Shows good latent grip through the finish, maintaining a racy edge. – JM

Beams of tannin and bright acids give the wine its shape and energy. Hints of smoke, espresso, succulent red cherry and rose petal build gradually into a crescendo of aromas, flavors and textures. The 2016 is powerful, concentrated and dense, yet retains terrific balance, with more than enough fruit intensity to handle the tannins. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Tasted two times.
