Winemaker Notes

Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines are planted according to the profile of each vineyard. The final blend features well-balanced, characterful flavors and fine tannin. Sustainable viticulture practices coupled with low yields, gentle fermentation, and barrel ageing adapted to each vintage reflect all the elegance and personality of this great terrior.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Deliciously plummy, with nice drive, offering plum, cassis and blackberry fruit that gets a nice push from well-integrated briar, toasted spice and red licorice notes. The fine-grained finish lets a chalky hint chime in, but remains cloaked in the fruit for now. A charming, pure wine that should age gracefully.—Larcis Ducasse non-blind vertical (December 2012). Drink now through 2022. 2,915 cases made.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Château Larcis Ducasse appears to be in fine fettle. Deep in color, it has a ripe and outgoing, fruit-driven bouquet for a 2004, abundant dark plum and cassis fruit intermingling with incense and violet aromas. The palate has commendable depth and concentration, denser than many Right Bank wines of this vintage, lush but without denuding this Larcis of requisite freshness on the finish. On this showing, I can foresee this offering another 15 years of pleasure. This is well worth hunting down, as it is probably still reasonably priced. Tasted February 2016.

Chateau Larcis-Ducasse, France
Chateau Larcis-Ducasse Winery Image
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 Chateau and at his death in 1925, his wife and then his son Andre kept the flame burning. André died during the war, leaving no children, thus it was his niece, Hélène Gratiot Alphandéry, 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’Oréal 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

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
