Chateau Larcis Ducasse 2016

Out of stock
France / 750ML / 2016

The 2016 Larcis-Ducasse is a blend of 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc picked between 12-19 October, matured in 225- and 500-liter barrels. It matured in 50% new oak, which is a lower proportion than you would have found in 2009 or 2010. It has a lively, expressive bouquet with detailed blackberry, briary and cranberry aromas that are neatly embroidered with the new oak, allowing the terroir to show through. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well balanced, quite spicy and peppery in the mouth but maintaining satisfying tension from start to finish. This is a very well crafted Larcis-Ducasse although I hope that during the ?Ÿ??levage it will just gain more persistence on the aftertaste. One to watch.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points Wine Advocate

In the 18th century, the Raba family, living in Bordeaux, made their fortune in commerce and maritime transport and in 1893, Henri Raba, a lover of great wines, bought Chateau Larcis Ducasse. His passion led him to invest a great part of his fortune in the Ch?Ÿ?›teau and at his death in 1925, his wife and then his son Andre kept the flame burning. Andr?Ÿ?? died during the war, leaving no children, thus it was his niece, H?Ÿ??l?Ÿ??ne Gratiot Alphand?Ÿ??ry, who inherited the property in 1941. She in her turn managed the property along with cellar-master Pharaon Roche and her son, Jacques Olivier Gratiot, director with l?›ƒ?ªƒ?›Or?Ÿ??al and member of the Jurade, became manager in 1990. Under his guidance, the long tradition of quality that characterised the wines of Larcis Ducasse was not only maintained but also improved. Chateau Larcis Ducasse is still in the hands of the Gratiot Alphandery family and since 2002 the property has been under the management of Nicolas Thienpont.
