Château Larcis Ducasse

About Château Larcis Ducasse

For many years, Larcis Ducasse was considered one of the greatest wastes of exceptional terroir in France. Located on some of the finest soils in the entire region, the Côte Pavie section of St-Émilion, this historic property consistently seemed to underperform.

 

The turn of the millennium heralded a new age for the Château, with the arrival of the current winemaking team which is one of the most formidable on either bank. David Suire helms the commercial aspects of day-to-day operations, but the real stars in the vineyard/winery are Nicholas Thienpont (of Pavie Macquin) and Stéphanie Derenoncourt, one of Bordeaux's most in-demand "flying consultants".

 

This mercurial triumvirate wasted no time in implementing vast reforms and improvements in all aspects of Château Larcis Ducasse - drainage channels were dug to improve water levels, Cabernet Franc was replaced with Merlot in the most suitable plots and a radical program of replanting has been mapped out for the next 40 years. A naturally low-yielding area, the vines are split 83:17 Merlot to Cabernet Sauvignon and produce grapes of intense concentration and naturally low pH due to the soil - richness and acidity is a recipe for exquisite balance finally found regularly in Larcis Ducasse.
