Chateau Marquis d'Alesme 2016, a wine of character

Displaying greater density than usual (except for the 2010 vintage) the Marquis d’Alesme (Becker) 2016 is a Margaux with a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc.

Concentrated at an aromatic level, the nose of this Margaux is not lacking in deliciousness or expression: perfumes of black cherry, mint chocolate and balsamic cedar appear. It is refreshing and delicious without expressing too much at this stage. The Chateau Marquis d'Alesme 2016 offers a wide palate with weight on tightly structured tannins, elegant and of considerable density. The retro-olfaction is at this stage more or less fruity, a fruit masked for the moment by a great concentration. Altogether this is a serious wine, not lacking in character or depth. The Marquis of Alesme 2016 has great ageing potential but will otherwise be nice to consume soon enough.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Marquis d'Alesme Becker leaps from the glass with gregarious notions of plum preserves, crème de cassis and Black Forest cake with hints of potpourri, star anise, menthol and tapenade. Full, rich, firm and grainy, with fantastic freshness lifting the densely packed palate, it has a long, beautifully fragrant finish.
