“Fruit for this wine always comes from the same vineyard site, and production was heavily reduced in this difficult vintage. If an average year sees 13,000 bottles made, only 6,200 bottles were made of the 2014 d’Alceo. This wine shows beautiful brightness and linearity with a polished, almost glossy texture that feels like silk on the palate. The wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a smaller part Petit Verdot. It offers a mid-weight texture with balanced tannins and acidity to seal the deal.” 94/100 (RP)

“The 2014 d’Alceo is more in line with previous years than Sammarco. Deep, unctuous and super-powerful, the 2014 exudes richness and textural intensity from the very first taste. Readers will have to give the 2014 at least a few years in bottle to help some of the baby fat meld away. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, sage, mint and lavender are some of the many notes that start to emerge as the wine sits in the glass. This is a terriffc effort for the vintage.” 95/100 (Vinous)

85% Cabernet-Sauvignon and 15% Petit-Verdot planted on a south-facing slope, entirely according to the laws of bio dynamics. d’Alceo is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest wines. The average scores for this wine are significantly higher than those of any Bordeaux Premier Grand Cru. That says it all.
