Chateau Marquis D’Alesme
France - Bordeaux

Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Chateau Marquis d’Alesme contributes in its way to building the history and reputation of Margaux. Its successive owners, well-known for their cosmopolitan culture, helped to develop the estate over the centuries, guided by a love of beauty and the desire to produce a great wine.

Today Nathalie Perrodo continues, with great enthusiasm, to pursue her father’s goals, while bringing a new dynamic to the estate. Alongside Marjolaine Maurice de Coninck, the General Director, she is writing a new chapter in the history of the estate, where the meticulous care that is taken to make a Great Wine is superbly reflected in the tasting experience.

In one of the world’s most prestigious wine-growing areas, the terroir of Marquis d’Alesme offers all the right conditions for achieving the level of excellence necessary for great wines. The soil (gravelly-siliceous, marly-siliceous and clay & limestone), is ideally exposed on natural gentle slopes. The weather is mild thanks to the presence of the nearby Gironde estuary. This unique environment produces a great wine with an exceptionally rich range of flavors.

The Cabernet “family” reigns supreme here, representing 70% of the grape varieties used (63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc). They bring concentration and structure, and comprise the backbone of the wine, while Merlot (30% of the grape varieties) gives a delicate roundness. Elegant and refined, often with a bouquet featuring floral and black fruit notes, the wines of Marquis d’Alesme are richly flavourful, with juicy blackcurrant, blackberry, and blueberry notes alongside well-balanced minerality.
