Cellar/Tasting Notes
The Gratiot family have owned Château Larcis Ducasse, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé, for over a century. The chateau’s terroir of clay/limestone soils on a south-facing slope produces wonderfully ripe grapes which result in complex, well-structured wines with fresh,mineral flavors. The final blend aims to provide a balance between aroma and tannin to give a wine of unique character and once you experience the wine, you will see that this aim has been met.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 91
"Since 2002, this great terroir has been fully exploited by the dynamic duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Following the monumental 2005,a legend in the making, it is hard to get excited about the 2006, even though it is an outstanding effort. While more austere and not as concentrated as its predecessor, it is an impressive blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc displaying a deep, dark ruby color as well as a striking bouquet of powdered rocks/minerals, sweet cherry and plum-like fruit, and hints of Christmas fruitcake and spice box. It is an elegant, medium-bodied, moderately tannic, pure effort possessing outstanding density."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 91
"Bright red-ruby. Soil-driven aromas of blueberry, licorice, minerals, dark chocolate and iron. Juicy, spicy and penetrating, with a lovely light touch to the flavors of black fruits, spices, mocha, minerals and flowers. An elegant, aromatic, very sexy wine with terrific energy and lift from calcaire I love the suave texture on display here. Finishes very long and perfumed, with firm but perfectly buffered tannins and lingering notes of red berries and minerals."
