Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
Some pretty spice notes here, with licorice, clove and blue and black berries. Medium-bodied with a creamy and plush tannin texture. Supple finish. Sea salt at the end.
Barrel Sample: 91-92
V 92
Vinous
The 2021 Alcée includes a new 4-hectare parcel en fermage in St-Genès-de-Castillon (clay over limestone), making 12.22 hectares in total. Cropped at 23.7hL/ha October 6–19, this has an open, expressive bouquet of dark cherries, bergamot and light sous-bois aromas, hints of pencil shavings emerging with aeration. The palate has a lovely juicy opening, fine acidity, rounded, supple red fruit and a harmonious, refined finish. This is a seductive Alcée in the making.–Neal Martin
Barrel Sample: 90-92
D 90
Decanter
Fragrant red berry fruit, pink flowers and raspberries on the nose. Juicy and lively, delicately framed with a light but expansive flavor in the mouth - feels well worked, open and approachable. I love the minerality on this - the soft saline edge to the fruit and touch of pencil lead to the tannins that then lingers on the tongue. On the right side of austere, this has a long length with refinement and grace at the end. An Alcée with lots of promise. Drinking Window: 2024 - 2030.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2021 Alcée derives from vines growing in red clay over limestone opposite La Prade, as well as holdings in Saint-Philippe d’Aiguille. Exhibiting aromas of juicy cherries, berries, tobacco and sweet soil tones, it's medium to full-bodied, lively and impressively concentrated, with tangy acids and youthfully chewy tannins. This is a strong effort from Nicolas Thienpont and his team. Barrel Sample: 88 - 90+.

JD 90
Jeb Dunnuck

Made from 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, planted in pure limestone soils, the 2021 Château Alcée offers a terrific perfume of cherries and black raspberries as well as chalky minerality and white flower notes. Medium-bodied and lively on the palate, it has moderate yet present tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and the fresher, pure, seamless style of the vintage. Barrel Sample : 88-90

Chateau Alcee Winery Image
Nicolas Theinpont, a man know for reviving wineries, began working with Chateau Alcee in 2011. Starting with the 2011 vintage, he started replacing some of the vines in an effort to increase vine density. Along with their massale, selection replanting program, only sustainable, organic farming techniques are being used.

Although it is a small 6.5 hectare vineyard, it is planted to a vine density of 6,500 vines per hectare (86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc). The vines have an average age of 40 years and are planted on red clay and limestone soils.

Chateau Alcee's production is small, close to 700 cases per vintage.
