Château Larcis-ducasse:
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 Château Larcis Ducasse.

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 Château Larcis Ducasse. His passion led him to invest a great part of his fortune in the Château and at his death in 1925, his wife and then his son André 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. Today Château Larcis Ducasse is still in the hands of the Gratiot Alphandéry family and since 2002 the property has been under the management of Nicolas Thienpont. Along with consultants, Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu, Nicolas Thienpont continues the efforts made up until now to enhance the quality of the wines of the property. He undertook a detailed study of the terroirs of the vineyard, implemented important renovations both in the vines and in the cellars and built up a strong team around him. Aware of the potential of the terroir of Larcis Ducasse and aided by his right hand man, David Suire, he uses traditional methods in tandem with innovation in order to unlock the greatness of this terroir.

Sweet fruit and anise nose. Anise and red fruit dominate on the palate. This is a potent wine. Voluptuous, rich and ripe with a very tannic finish. Lots of potential here.

81% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc. A broad and full bodied wine that is delicious right now. Ripe aromatics of bittersweet chocolate, black fruits and some savory stuff. Very juicy and layered. A showstopper. Stephane Derenoncourt consults. Chuck Hayward. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Larcis-Ducasse 3000ml

A solid wine, with blueberry, minerals and spice character. Solid core of ripe, juicy fruit and firm, silky tannins with a fruity finish. Yet, reserved and refined. Try it in 2017. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Larcis-Ducasse 750ml
