Year: 2015 | Country: France | Region: Bordeaux - Left Bank | Volume: 75cl | Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot | ABV: 14.5%
Château Marquis d'Alesme is an estate located in the Margaux appellation of the Médoc. It was classified as a third growth in the original 1855 Bordeaux Classification. The château dates back to 1585 when François d'Alesme, advisor to King Henri III, founded the estate. The first vineyards were established in the early 1600s and were managed by successive generations of the d'Alesme family. The vineyards are characterized by gravel-rich soils mixed with sand, clay and limestone. The sun-exposed slopes are cooled by the nearby Gironde estuary, providing the perfect growing conditions for vines.
Intense black cherry, blackberry, new leather, espresso and torrefaction flavors give the 2015 Marquis d'Alesme much of its sumptuous, flamboyant personality. Plush, modern and exotic in both its concentration and flavor profile, Marquis d'Alesme presents the more extroverted side of Margaux. All the elements are wonderfully fused together in a deep, expressive wine that will drink well for many years to come.
