Chateau Marquis d'Alesme Becker Margaux 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

A dark, winey style, with thickly layered crushed fig, currant paste and blackberry confiture notes wrapped with loads of graphite and roasted spice. The long finish has lots of grip. Well-packed. A strong showing. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Marquis d'Alesme Becker 750ml

From an assemblage of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the wine reached 14% alcohol, but there is no sensation of heat in the beautiful Margaux wine.
