Description/ Tasting NotesDeep garnet-purple in colour, the 2017 Larcis Ducasse is refined and focused with enticing nose of kirsch, warm blackberries, baked plums and wild blueberries with hints of pencil lead, tar, tilled soil and forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly knit with great poise and subtlety, offering bright, energetic fruit and loads of minerally sparks, finishing with great length.
Winery Info/ Brand
A stone's throw from the village of St-Emilion, Larcis Ducasse is a garden, a world apart. Eleven hectares and thirty of vines stand out along its reliefs, on its gentle and steep slopes. At a glance, the visitor can embrace the vineyard and fall in love with it. From the mythical Grande Côte to the limestone promontory overlooking the Dordogne valley, Larcis Ducasse reveals a staircase with steps stitched with light and freshness.
Region Info/ Origin
Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
