Description

95   Neal Martin for Vinous
“The 2019 Marquis d’Alesme Becker was very impressive from barrel. Now in bottle, it has retained those engaging aromas of blackberry, raspberry, cedar and a pinch of spice, well defined and quintessentially Margaux. The palate is understated on the entry, smooth and sensual in texture, with gorgeous, very pure red fruit. I adore the harmony of this wine, and the way it sashays toward the finish. Deceptively approachable, this will mature beautifully in bottle.” (2/2022)

95   Jane Anson
“Carefully constructed tannic architecture, moreish sapdity, crushed roses, blueberries, blackberries, edges of fennel and pomegranate, love it. Real grip, length and balance. Harvest September 26 to October 12. Marjolaine de Coninck technical director, owner Nathalie Perrodo.” (3/2023)

94   Georgie Hindle for Decanter
“Nice welcoming and inviting nose, expressive and generous. Fresh, juicy, supple and bright, this shines quite brightly with good acidity gives things immediate lift then the tannins come in, filling the palate with dense fruit and wet stone flavours. Seriously mouth filling, but in a pleasant way, structured and well rounded. Defined fruit. Tannins just need to settle a little and let the wine expand.” (1/2022)

94   James Suckling
“A perfumed nose of dark cherries, blackberries, mocha, dried flowers, bark, toffee, cedar and baking spices. Medium-bodied with fine, firm tannins. Perfumed and silky with plenty or ripe cherry and sweet spice notes. Framed and layered with a flavorful finish. Drink from 2025.” (3/2022)

94   Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“A bold, extroverted wine the 2019 Marquis d’Alesme is every bit as impressive from bottle as it was en primeur. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, leather, licorice and bittersweet chocolate are all amplified, as are the potent tannins. This is an especially rich, extracted style of Margaux, and yet all the elements come together so well, especially with a bit of air.” (02/2022) 94 points Jane Anson for Inside Bordeaux: “Great quality here, powerful but well handled and deftly extracted. Enough plump fruits through the mid palate to keep you smiling, with confident tannins that hold things together, and a sappy, mouthwatering finish. The generosity of the summer comes through in terms of the ripeness of the berry fruits, but this is delicious.” (10/2021)
