Since Nicholas Thienpont of Chateau Pavie-Macquin started working with Alcee in 2011 the quality and focus of the estate has drastically improved. Lisa Perrotti-Brown specifically called out Alcee as a wine to check out from 2018 and awarded it 93+ points.
“The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Alcee is strutting quite a lot of oak along with loads of beautiful, underlying black cherry compote, warm blueberries and red plum preserves notes plus wafts of dark chocolate and menthol. Full-bodied with a rock-solid line of firm, ripe, grainy tannins, it has generous blue and black fruit layers and a lively line, finishing with a minty kick” - WA
