Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92+

Wine Advocate

Nicolas Thienpont’s Alcee comes from a two-part vineyard, but the section that is by La Prade didn't get frosted, and these vines were exclusively used to make this 2017 Alcee. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with intense cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and blackberry preserves notes with touches of baking spices and lilacs. The palate is medium to full-bodied and packed with black fruits and spice layers, framed by ripe, plush tannins and finishing with impressive length. LPB

Neal Martin

The 2017 Alcée, part of Nicolas Thienpont's portfolio, was picked from 27 to 29 September from the three hectares of vine next to Monbadon, the two parcels on Saint-Philippe d’Aiguilhe having suffered from severe frost damage. It has a very confit-like bouquet: raspberry preserve, marmalade and fig aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with quite succulent tannins, again, just a little confit-like although not to the same degree as the aromatics, veins of black pepper and clove emerging towards the finish. What survived the frost has turned out well this year. 875 cases produced. www.vinous.com

James Suckling

A pretty expression of Castillon with plum, walnut and volcanic-salt character. Medium to full body. Firm, chewy tannins and a fresh, flavorful finish. Needs a little time to soften.

Antonio Galloni

The 2017 Alcee is gorgeous. Bright, floral and delineated, the 2017 possesses terrific energy to play off the bright red-toned flavors. One of the two fermentation vats included a dollop of whole clusters, which gives the wine perceptible vivacity and energy. There is a lot to like here.
