Marks and reviews
Château Larcis Ducasse is a magnificent estate located on the border of the famous Côte Pavie, and it overlooks an 11-hectare vineyard on one of the greatest terroirs in the world. Château Larcis Ducasse combines the unique strengths of hillside-planted vines with southern exposure in a mosaic of prime terroirs to make it one of the most emblematic Premier Grand Crus of Saint-Emilion on the Right Bank in the Bordeaux region.
Nicolas Thienpont has been the manager of the estate since 2002, and oenologist David Suire has joined him with the mission of revealing the expression of this exceptional terroir. The vintages have only strengthened in recent years with magnificent wines of depth, purity and rare nobility that display the most delicious sunny character.
The estate escaped the frosts that hit at the end of April, and Château Larcis Ducasse proves itself as one of the top favourites of this vintage of contrasts. The blend consists of Merlot (92%) and Cabernet Franc (8%). The Château Larcis Ducasse 2017 is a true success for Nicolas Thienpont.
The nose discovers a beautiful solar and concentrated bouquet of blackberry, black cherry liqueur and sweet spice aromas along with delicate floral notes that evoke rose petal and violet scents. With roundness and fleshiness, Château Larcis Ducasse 2017 reveals a velvety, sensual and fleshy mouthfeel, which envelops the palate in a succession of different sensations. Fine tannins that coat the palate give structure while the mid-palate centres on fruit concentration. This all unfolds with freshness and vivacity to give a persistent and aromatic finish. A true success for Larcis Ducasse that guarantees a promising evolution.
