Bordeaux Futures 2022 will arrive in Summer 2025
95 points Decanter
"Perfumed floral, milk chocolate and black cherry aromas on the nose. Sleek and finessed, a lovely purity and clarity to this, still quite a lot of tension, it's holding its ripe black fruit and clear mineral well, lifted by high acidity that gives life and energy. Fairly tannic still, but juicy, alive and expansive. A sense of fun and style here, lovely freshness and brightness. Elegant and well controlled, Lots to like here. (GH)" (4/2023)

"Glass-staining purple gives vibrancy and sets the tone for the stunning depths and character of the wine. This has so much texture, with rippling powerful cassis and blueberry fruit, slate and pummice stone, grips on through the palate, and like the best 2022s manages to be extremely ripe without being overly sweet, with a build up of tannins that gives structure without being drying. As it opens you get pulses of pummice stone minerality, and floral aromatics. Harvest September 15 to October 4. 60% new oak. Marjolaine de Coninck CEO and technical director. The blend given is planted, not as per final wine, allowing slight evolution over ageing, so these are ones to check back in on when in bottle."

"Another concentrated Margaux, the 2022 Château Marquis D'Alesme boasts a deep purple hue as well as brilliant aromatics of red and black fruits, smoked tobacco, chocolate, and wood smoke. Medium to full-bodied and nicely balanced, with plenty of mid-palate depth, it shows the ripe, sexy, opulent style of the vintage and will offer ample pleasure in its youth yet still age gracefully"
92 Antonio Galloni for Vinous
"The 2022 Marquis d'Alesme is a dark, plummy wine. Succulent cherry, plum, licorice, spice, espresso and menthol are nicely pushed forward. There's terrific energy, focus and cut here."
