Château ALCÉE Red 2023 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.

Revue du Vin de France : 91-92/100 « Issu d’un plateau calcaire, c’est un castillon de bonne constitution. Une chair dynamique, traçante. Idéal pour découvrir l’appellation. »
Bettane & Desseauve : 91-92/100 ♥ Coup de cœur « C’est à la fois énergique, soyeux, fin et raffiné. Progressivement, le vin se met en place et il donnera du plaisir très rapidement. »
Galloni : 88-90/100
 « The 2023 Alcée is a dense, plush, explosive wine. Inky dark fruit, leather, licorice, mocha, sage and chocolate are all amplified to the maximum. Poor soils yielded an especially dense, opulent Alcée. There's just a bit of dryness on the finish. Tasted four times. »
Martin : 90-92/100 « Both samples were showing just a little reduction on the nose, though it opens in the glass with black cherries, boysenberry and light floral scents, violets and iris. The palate is medium-bodied with sapid black fruit, fine acidity, a more muscular Alcée here but at least there is freshness on the finish. The second sample at the end of my tasting exhibited more length and complexity and my score reflects this. »
