Chateau Marquise d'Alesme 2001

I wondered at first why the name "grand cru classé" was omitted from this label.  Why would they do that?!  The label looked a little unfamiliar too, sans horse shoe.  It slowly dawned upon me though that this in fact was not the Chateau Marquis d'Alesme Becker of cru classé, but in fact their similarly named second label.  Lesson learnt.  What then of the wine?  It has a pencil box aroma, and some pleasant length and blackcurrants on the palate, if a bit austere.  Drink now.  84 to 85 points.
