Winemaker Notes:  In this 2020 vintage, the Cote of Larcis-Ducasse hillside was revealing all its Premier Grand Cru Classe quality. With a striking contrast between a spring marked by the rain and a dry summer, the vines of Larcis enjoyed all the right conditions to temper and balance the excesses of the climate. And in this sun-drenched terroir, the dense, fresh dynamic character of the wine really came into its own.


Jeb Dunnuck - "A wine that’s going to flirt with perfection is the 2020 Château Larcis Ducasse. It’s a Saint-Emilion with an almost Pomerol-like depth and power paired with classic Saint-Emilion aromatics and minerality. Incredibly pure notes of black cherries, blackberries, white flowers, truffle, and leafy herb notes all emerge on the nose and it’s full-bodied, with a layered, multi-dimensional texture, thrilling tannins, and a finish that won’t quit. If you get a chance, buy it. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, aging in 55% new French oak. Barrel Sample: 96-99"

James Suckling - "Blackberry and asphalt with cool minerals and a hint of mint. It’s full-bodied and chewy with intense flavors and a long, flavorful finish. Lots of chalk and an almost salty undertone. Barrel Sample: 97-98"

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2020 Larcis Ducasse has a deep purple-black color, leaping from the glass with bold notions of redcurrant jelly, plum preserves, kirsch and red roses, followed by hints of licorice, fragrant earth and spice cake, with a touch of woodsmoke. The medium to full-bodied palate is laden with fragrant red berries and profound black fruit preserves, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and lovely tension, finishing very long and fantastically layered. Absolutely, stunningly singular. Barrel Sample: 96-98"

Decanter - "Great consistency over the past few years at this property but this is really stepping things up a level. With poise and depth of flavour, we are digging down through the layers. Extremely elegant, a wine that is precise and pared back and totally delicious. You can almost feel the points of minerality poking into your tongue, but then they melt into a softer more luxurious whole, with blackberry, cassis and black chocolate. Great stuff. Tasted several times, and every time it shows itself to be something out of the ordinary. A brilliant wine that I thoroughly recommend getting hold of. Barrel Sample: 97"

Wine Enthusiast - "This estate shows the density of the vintage in Saint-Emilion. At the same time, it shows the surprising freshness of many of the wines. Power and density combine with floating black currant flavors in a wine that is sure to age well. Barrel Sample: 94-96"
