The 2022 Marquis d’Alesme Becker was picked 15 September to 4 October and matured in 60% new French oak. This has a sensual bouquet with black cherries, blueberry and light crushed violet scents. The oak is neatly integrated. Très Margaux. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins, harmonious, at the moment a step up from the Labégorce due to the complexity on the finish. This will surely be irresistible and perhaps a little earlier drinking compared to some of its peers.
Anticipated maturity: 2029-2055
