I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/55353 for £10.50.Margaux is the largest AOC in the Medoc peninsular and the home of 18 cru classe in the famous 1855 classification.Chateau Marquis D'Alesme Becker [ www.chateau-marquis-dalesme.fr ] was a third growth in that classification. The property is one of the oldest in the Medoc,the vineyards were laid out by the Marquis D'Alesme in 1585, and the first record of the property is in 1616, In the 19th century it was owned by a Dutchman Jan Bekker Teerlink who added his middle name to the name of the chateau.The 20th century saw a series of owners including the Zuger family and it was then bought by the Perrodo family in 2006 who have instigated a programme of improvements..There are 15 hectares under vine on three plots and the average vine is 40 years old. The wine consists of 65% cabernet sauvignon 30% merlot and 5% petit verdot and spends 18 months in oak barrels. I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast chicken and I enjoyed it. There is plenty of a blackcurrant or plum style fruit there and the tannins were soft and mellow.In short this was a quality wine at a value for money price I must confess that I do not get to drink too many classed growths but I did like this one
