Known for its excellent terroir, Larcis-Ducasse borders the vineyard of Chateau Pavie, and enjoys a full southerly exposure. Planted to 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the average age of the vines is 35 years. In 2002, the owners hired the talented duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt to produce the wines.

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Larcis Ducasse opens with opulent scents of blueberry pie, baked plums and spice cake with nuances of unsmoked cigars, dusty soil, licorice and a touch of salami. Big, rich, full-bodied and incredibly impactful on the palate, it proudly struts its bold black and blue fruits with a plush, velvet-textured cape, finishing long and spicy.

Wine Spectator This nearly gushes with succulent plum, blackberry and black currant preserve flavors, but they stay on the racy and refined side overall, flecked with anise, Lapsang souchong tea and violet notes. A lovely chalky spine controls the finish with a deft hand. Best from 2020 through 2035. 2,375 cases made.
