Chateau Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a winery in the Margaux appellation of the Bordeaux wine region of France. The wine produced here was classified as one of fourteen Troisimes Crus (Third Growths) in the historic Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.

The estate saw a succession of owners, including English firm WH Chaplin & Co and the Zuger family, until it was sold in 2006 to petrochemical industry businessman Hubert Perrodo. Apparently with elaborate plans of combining several of his Margaux estates, no changes took place after Perrodo was killed in a skiing accident in late 2006. The estate is currently run by Nathalie Perrodo and a largely female team with consultancy from Michel Rolland and Claude Gros..

The vineyard area consists of 16 hectares of vines, currently planted with 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare. Since 2010 only the finest grape juice is used in the wine with the rest being sold off in bulk. The usual blend includes 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and the winemaking is carried out equally in concrete and wooden vats which were replaced in 2010. The wine then sounds 18 months in ok of which 50-60% is new.
