    Marquis d´Alesme Becker 2015 (750ML)

    In Stock — Zachys NY
    93 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "This is broad and fleshy in feel, with smoldering tobacco, warm ganache and espresso notes that meld slowly into the core of steeped blackberry and black currant fruit. Shows a long tarry edge on the finish, with the fruit keeping pace. Rock-solid." 3/18

    Zachys Notes
    95 Points, Christopher Deas, Zachys Buying Team: "No doubt about, this was one of the most exiting finds along the Bordeaux trail this April. It is "knock your socks off" Petit Margaux juice from a historic, rising star in the making. We tasted the 2016 after the stunning 2018 from barrel - and this is a wow factor arrival to get excited about. There is generous and explosive Margaux fruit, but it is not over the top. It is fresh and high-toned, with layers for black fruit, crushed flowers, and herbs with plenty of structure and tannins under the hood. There is a savory quality to the wine that separates it from some neighbors and it seems to package elements of Margaux, Graves, and even Saint-Emilion with its verve and minerality. This is an exciting classified growth find under $49 - unfortunately, this will not last long." 4/19
    Wine Advocate Notes
    91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc that was cropped at 35 hl/ha between 28 September and 15 October. Matured in 65% new oak, it has a precocious bouquet with opulent violet-tinged cassis fruit that needs to find a little more delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, plenty of depth with a crisp line of acidity, with impressive density on the finish that would be enhanced with more precision." 2/18
    Antonio Galloni
    94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is one of the best wines I have tasted from this resurgent estate in the heart of Margaux. Ample and inviting, the 2015 possesses superb richness throughout. There is plenty of tannin and underlying structure, but those elements are nicely balanced by the sheer luxuriousness of the fruit. Readers should expect a decidedly intense style. Everything falls into place effortlessly in this superb Marquis d'Alesme Becker from the Perrodo family and consulting winemaker Michel Rolland. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Tasted two times." 4/16
    James Suckling Notes
    94 Points, James Suckling: "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." 2/18

    93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck: " From an estate readers should watch going forward, the 2015 Château Marquis d'Alesme Becker from relatively new owner Marjolain De Coninck is impressive and offers lots of Cabernet Sauvignon blue fruits as well as ample toasty oak in a relatively modern style. 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." 11/17
