Chateau Marquis d'Alesme Becker, Margaux 3rd Cru. The castle of Marquis Alesme Becker is a vineyard of 15 hectares located in Margaux in Gironde. In Margaux appellation, it is ranked third vintage in the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855. The creation of the vineyard dates back to the year 1585. It bears the name of an ancient local family. The first record of the property dates to 1616. Under the First Empire, the estate was sold to a trader Holland, Jean Bekker Terrlink. The name of the latter, Germanized, was added to the founding of the classification of wines of the Medoc in 1855: thus Chateau Marquis d'Alesme Becker was listed as the third Grand Cru Classe. In 1938, Edmond Ritz, mining engineer, came from Alsace, bought the property, then inherited by his small son, Jean Claude Zuger. Perrodo Hubert (1944-2006), French industrialist, owner of the cru bourgeois Chateau Margaux Labégorce, acquired the winery in 2006. In the first time a team has been recreated and extensive work has been undertaken: planting, trellising, drainage and return to traditional tillage. Everything is made to ensure the rebirth and the future of a great wine, while respecting its traditions, the value of its land and the modernization of its production. Since the death of Hubert Perrodo in 2006, the properties of the Hubert Family Perrodo Margaux are managed by Nathalie Perrodo.
Unquestionably a great vintage.
