Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

88% merlot and 12% cabernet franc.

Acquired in the early 2010s by Nicolas Thienpont, Château Alcée comprises just over six hectares of vineyards in the Côtes-de-Castillon appellation. The vines flourish on a first limestone plateau with outcrops of rock, while drawing their letters of nobility from red clays, and on a second limestone plateau that mixes superficial edges and clay. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc that make up this cuvée are harvested by hand.

The wine is vinified in concrete vats and aged in oak barrels (half new) for between 16 and 18 months. This wine contains a wonderful concentration of fruit flavours with a certain freshness supported by the energy coming from the Cabernet Franc grapes and the limestone terroir.

James Suckling: 92-93/100
This is very long and salty, with dark fruit and fine tannins. It highlights the quality of the vintage. Medium body and fine tannins. 88% merlot and 12% cabernet franc.
