Château ALCÉE Red 2020 Futures

A 6 ha property (92% Merlot) acquired in 2011 by Mr. Thienpont (Pavie-Macquin, Larcis-Ducasse...). After a break-in period, Alcée takes off in 2016, standing out from its neighbours by its emphasis on finesse, minerality and distinction. A wine with more length than breadth.

Already ranked among the "essential producers" in the 2019 Bettane&Desseauve guide.

Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100 « Cœur de bouche soyeux subtil, caractère vibrant, énergique et dynamique du tannin, tout est réuni dans ce vin hédoniste qui va évoluer favorablement dans le temps. À mettre entre toutes les mains. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 89-91/100 « The 2020 Alcée is quite the powerhouse. Blackberry jam, bittersweet chocolate, savory herbs, lavender and cloves are all kicked up. This is flamboyant to the core, with tons of density and just as much immediacy. »
Martin (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2020 Alcée has a well-defined bouquet, nicely controlled, featuring crisp blackberry, briar, undergrowth and very subtle marmalade aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly edgy tannins that lend this Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux a Left Bank quality. Fine salinity emerges toward the finish. »
