2019, Château Larcis Ducasse, ST. EMILION

$100 ex. GST
$115 inc. GST
Estimated full landed price – $128.80

Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.

This is intense, pretty austere as is often the case with a young Larcis Ducasse, and very much with Cabernet fruits dominant even though they are 12% of the blend (it is rather that the Merlot on these limestone soils takes on a depth and seriousness that makes it almost Left Bank in feel). Opens up to reveal fleshy cassis and blackberry. A yield of 38.5hl/ha. Owned by Famille Gratiot-Attmane, but with the Nicolas Thienpont team overseeing winemaking. Tasted twice, one week apart. 94/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.

Drinking Window: 2027 - 2044.
