Despite dropping it from its name this wine is still known in the trade simply as “Becker”. Marjolaine de Coninck, one of the top women winemakers in Bordeaux, coupled with some serious recent investments, Michel Rolland consulting, and you have one of the hottest properties in Bordeaux.
It has a clean and pure bouquet with blackberry, briary, cedar and subtle floral notes - very Margaux and enticingly understated in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly grainy entry, a very well structured wine with a sappy finish that gets the saliva flowing. Superb.”- VN

The 2019 Marquis d'Alesme Becker was picked from 26 September to 12 October and matures in 50% new oak. It has a clean and pure bouquet with blackberry, briary, cedar and subtle floral notes - very Margaux and enticingly understated in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly grainy entry, a very well structured wine with a sappy finish that gets the saliva flowing. Superb.
