  • What the experts say...

    Impressionnant de richesse, avec un nez épicé de cèdre et de cassis, ce 1990 exprime une bouche riche et corsée, crémeuse et veloutée. Il révèle par paliers un généreux fruité étayé par des tannins modéré.(...) Source: Robert Parker (1/93)

    Cuvée presentation

    Larcis Ducasse's terroir means that it can produce concentrated, sun-drenched wine that always retains a certain elegance. It has an attractive dark fruit and spice bouquet. As it develops, it delivers distinctive truffle notes. A wine to be savoured after 7 to 20 years of cellaring.

    Information about domain Château Larcis Ducasse

    Larcis Ducasse is a 11-hectare château in the commune of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes, on the famous Côte Pavie. Nicolas Thiepont is now at the helm of the domaine, with Stéphane Derenencourt as his advisor. Ranked 1er grand cru, this Saint-Emilion has made impressive progress. Larcis Ducasse's exceptional terroir can produce sun-drenched wines which are usually much more balanced than those made by some of its neighbours.
