Château-Marquis-d'Alesme Margaux 2010
Wine EnthusiastA wine that is smoky from the wood, while the tannins are firm and structured. It has a dark character, dominated by final new wood flavors.
Wine SpectatorThis is fresh and engaging, with firm but lively singed alder and apple wood notes framing a core of plum, red currant and steeped black cherry fruit. Offers pepper and tobacco hints on the grippy finish. This will need a touch of cellaring to round into form. Best from 2015 through 2028.
