Property of 6 ha in Côtes de Castillon acquired in 2011 by the oenologist M. Thienpont (Puyguéraud, Pavie-Macquin, Larcis-Ducasse, Berliquet, etc.). After 5 years of restructuring, Mr. Thienpont is finally proud of his wine and offers it for the first time in 2016. Even if Merlot is dominant (92%), Alcée stands out from its neighbours by its emphasis on finesse, minerality and distinction. A wine in length and not in width!
Bettane & Desseauve : 92-93/100
Revue du Vin de France :
Dupont (Le Point) :
Quarin : 87/100 « Nez aromatique, au fruité crémeux. Jolie bouche moelleuse, savoureuse et particulièrement parfumée. Longueur normale, sans tannin marqué. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2019 Alcée is effusive and charming, especially in its aromatics, which are quite expressive. Rose petal, raspberry jam, spice and mint are all laced together in this silky, mid-weight Côtes de Castillon. Gracious and refined, Alcée is shaping up quite nicely. »
