Château Marquis d'Alesme-Becker

The winery is located in the municipality Margaux in the same area in Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). Its immediate neighbor is the famous one Chateau Margaux, The vineyards were among the first three estates created by the Marquis d'Alesme in Margaux in 1585. After a checkered history, the property came into the ownership of Jean-Jules Chaix Théophile-d'Est-Ange (+1923) at the beginning of the 20th century Chateau Lascombes, He wanted to merge both goods, but died before the realization. After the Second World War it came into the possession of the English family WH Chaplin, who shared it with the Château Malescot Saint-Exupéry sold to the Zuger family in 1955. The two goods were operated together until 1979. The Château Marquis d'Alesme-Becker is now managed by Jean-Claude Zuger. In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 the estate received third place (Troisième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 18 hectares in Soussans and Margaux. They are planted with Merlot (45%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Petit Verdot (10%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 12 months in one-third new barriques. The second wine is called "Marquise d'Alesme".
