A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Alcée offers up notes of cherry, cassis, violet and dark berries, it’s medium to full-bodied, broad and supple, with terrific concentration allied with racy acids.

A very floral and beautiful wine with salt and iron. It’s medium-bodied with firm tannins and a iron-like finish. Drink after 2025.

Coming from the Castillon region and based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Château Alcée is another brilliant wine from the Thienpont team. Lots of red and black fruits, white truffle, spice, and some floral notes all emerge from this incredibly elegant, medium-bodied, finesse-driven 2020. It shows lots of limestone character, and I suspect it will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age. It should evolve nicely through 2032.

91 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für denLisa Perrotti-Brown über den Chateau Alcee 2018 Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux (April 2021):

Composed of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Alcee charges out of the gate with bold notions of stewed black cherries, blackberry preserves and fruitcake, plus hints of cinnamon toast, licorice and tobacco leaf with a waft of camphor. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of ripe black fruit flavors with a velvety texture and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.
 
91 Sucklingpunkte für denJames Suckling im März 2021 zum Chateau Alcee 2018 Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux:

Black cherries, blueberries, dried leaves, praline and some tar on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, broad tannins. Structured and concentrated. 96% merlot and 4% cabernet franc. Better from 2023.
 
90 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für denNeal Martin schreibt im Januar 2021:

The 2018 Alcée, the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux from Nicolas Thienpont, has a rather thick, dense bouquet of opulent blackberry and cassis fruit. It is certainly the most sumptuous of Thienpont’s wines this vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins that frame layers of tar- and tobacco-infused black fruit. Dichotomous to the nose, the finish comes across as structured and a little more austere in style. I appreciate the focus and spiciness of this Alcée, which deserves 2–3 years in bottle. Very fine, if a bit like a jigsaw puzzle: you have to put it together in your mind!

Ripe dark fruit, licorice, walnuts and cured meat on the nose. Full body and fine, chewy tannins and impressive depth. Polished, firm finish with hints of crushed stones. Rich and intense, yet balanced and delicious. 96% merlot and 4% cabernet franc. Try after 2024.
 
92 Punkte von Jeb Dunnuck für den Chateau Alcee 2019 Castillon Cotes de BordeauxJeb Dunnuck im April 2022:

Black cherries, red plums, tobacco, and chalky minerality all emerge from the 2019 Château Alcée, a juicy, medium-bodied, round, incredibly satisfying Castillon with ripe tannins and rock-solid overall balance. It's beautiful today, yet I see no reason it shouldn't evolve and drink well for a decade. 
 
91 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Alcee 2019 Castillon Cotes de BordeauxYohan Castaing im April 2023:

Aromas of rose petals, cassis, crème de cassis, dark berries and touches of violet introduce the 2019 Alcée, a medium-bodied, juicy, lively and perfectly balanced wine that’s elegantly fleshy and fresh. It’s an attractive wine from the appellation of Castillon.
