94 Points - Wine Spectator
"Fresh, with a pure beam of cassis, flecked with singed alder, dried anise and lilac notes. Shows good latent grip through the finish, maintaining a racy edge."

"The 2016 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a bold, racy wine. Beams of tannin and bright acids give the wine its shape and energy. Hints of smoke, espresso, succulent red cherry and rose petal build gradually into a crescendo of aromas, flavors and textures. The 2016 is powerful, concentrated and dense, yet retains terrific balance, with more than enough fruit intensity to handle the tannins. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Tasted two times."

94 Points - The Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc cropped between 4-24 October and matured in 65% new oak. It has a tight and focused bouquet, well defined but less generous than its peers: blackberry, briary, a touch of limestone and cedar aromas gently unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture, very harmonious with superb depth, perhaps demonstrating more roundness and opulence than its peers with a very concentrated finish where I would just like to see more finesse come through."

93 Points -Decanter
"There has been a lot of investment in this property from the all-female team, from owner Nathalie Perrodo to winemaker Marjolaine Maurice-de Coninck. Don't think this means a feminine take on the vintage though; we have the full gamut of chewy tannins running through well structured, ripe cassis fruit. It holds back on the finish, with a sense of confidence and careful extraction. Maybe not as floral as some, but for me it's another step up in quality from this fast-rising estate."

92 Points - James Suckling
"Refined and very pretty with currants, blueberries and crushed stones. Medium body and polished tannins. Not the 2015 but very inviting indeed."
