(95-97) Under the helm of Marjolaine de Coninck and consultant Michel Rolland, this estate has been on fire, and their 2018 Château Marquis d'Alesme Becker might just be the best yet. Comprised of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aging in 65% new oak, this deeply colored Margaux offers a thrilling bouquet of crème de cassis, high-class smoke tobacco, graphite, and earth. Full-bodied, pure, beautifully concentrated, and structured, it has a backward, primordial feel and is going to need a solid 7-8 years of bottle age, but it’s a brilliant Margaux readers should snatch up! Tasted twice.

(94 - 96) The 2018 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is from the lieu-dit Les Terrasses de Margaux. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, and it has 14.5% alcohol. It is to be aged 18 months in 65% new and 35% two-year-old barrels. Deep purple-black in color, it leaps from the glass with bold, expressive black cherries, warm plums, crème de cassis and red roses scents with touches of baking spices, potpourri and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, rich and opulent, it completely fills the palate with hedonic black fruit preserves and spices, framed by firm, velvety tannins and finishing with fantastic length.-LPB

(94-96) With a touch of smoke, earth, red fruits, violets and espresso, this wine is rich, polished and loaded with ripe, juicy, sweet vibrant fruits. The wine was made from blending 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, reaching 14.5% alcohol. Talk about a home run, this is one of the most improved estates in the Margaux appellation and it still sells for a song!

(94-95) This is a wonderful wine with dark berries, wet earth and dark tea. Full body, firm and striking tannins and a long, flavorful finish.

In 2018 Marquis d'Alesme is far more aromatically complex and more nuanced than it has been in the recent past. Sweet floral, savory and spice add striking layers of dimension. The fruit is especially vibrant, with none of the overextracted notes or heaviness that plagued some recent vintages. The 2018 is really impressive. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. I can't wait to taste it from bottle.- AG

Good stuff from winemaker Marjolaine de Coninck: there's a creamy sweetness through the palate, with patisserie notes joining the dark fruit impact of the Cabernet. It's well balanced and rich, with tannins that build fairly rapidly from the mid-palate onwards - you can feel their impact but they support rather than crush. Fermentation temperature was kept to 26°C to ensure gentle extraction, nicely combining the clear pleasure of this wine with a sense of elegance. 3.65pH. 65% new oak. Harvested 25 September to 12 October. 5% Petit Verdot completes the blend.
