Tasting Notes and Scores

89-91

Wine Advocate

This 15-hectare estate has produced the Perrodo family's most serious, structured wine this year in the form of the 2021 Marquis d'Alesme. Exhibiting aromas of raspberries, red cherries, violets and blood orange, it's medium to full-bodied, with powdery tannins, lively acids and creditable persistence on the finish.
William Kelley, April 2022

Neal Martin

The 2021 Marquis d'Alesme Becker was picked from 30 September and 14 October, matured 50% new oak. Now, this has a lovely bouquet with iris flower infusing the lifted black fruit, fine mineralité here. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins, fine grip, slightly saline with a bit of sinew on the finish. Fine sense of energy here, though it does not fan out like the 2019 or 2020, i.e. it reflects the growing season.

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Marquis d'Alesme is packed with inky dark fruit, licorice, lavender, spice, graphite and new leather. Although not exactly the last word in finesse, the 2021 certainly packs a good bit of punch. Incisive tannins will need a few years to settle down.

Clear spiced pepper and turmeric notes giving depth, momentum and interest to the black cherry and blueberry fruit. Good depth to the colour also, this is enjoyable and well structured without being overly austere. Tasted twice, impressed both times. 3.8ph, 60% new oak, harvest September 30 to October 14. 32hl/h yield.
