    Chateau Larcis Ducasse 2016: a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru with balanced tannins

    A Saint-Emilion First Great Classified Growth B, Chateau Larcis Ducasse is a red wine produced in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation. With vines averaging 35 years, the vineyard covers 11 hectares (including 9 hectares in production) and benefits from very diverse soils among the Saint-Emilion plateau, the Grande Cote de Saint-Emilion and the foot of the Cote Saint-Emilion. The wine is aged in barrels (new and one-year-old barrels). The blend of ChAteau Larcis Ducasse 2016 consists of 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc.

    Rainy weather and an extremely dry summer marked the 2016 Chateau Larcis Ducasse vintage. The quality of the vineyards and the terroir could balance these extreme conditions to offer an exceptional wine.

    The Chateau Larcis Ducasse 2016 presents an expressive nose that exudes blackberry and cranberry aromas mixed with oaky notes due to aging. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and offers balanced tannins. We can note spicy and peppery flavours that blend perfectly with a beautiful tension.

    This comment is intended to describe the general profile of the wine at a given moment. Be aware that the wine can evolve in the bottle over time and express other organoleptic qualities.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Larcis Ducasse sashays gracefully out of the glass with beautiful Black Forest cake, red cherry compote, raspberry preserves and blackberry pie scents plus hints of cigar box, Ceylon tea, dried lavender and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers gorgeous red and black fruit preserves flavors with a wonderfully plush texture and very long, perfumed finish.
