Château Larcis Ducasse Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

9.18 ratings on Delectable
$235

With an unbelievable nose of licorice, tapenade, black cherry and blackcurrant liqueur, as well as full body, super-sweet tannin, and astonishing richness and length, this prodigious effort in 2005 announced the resurrection of this great terroir on the slopes near Chateau Pavie ($600+BTL). Dark garnet/plum/purple, this is compelling stuff and drinkable already, but capable of lasting another 25-30 years. This beauty is not to be missed! Only 3,000 cases were produced, from a blend of 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink: 2015-2045. Robert Parker

2005 was a little musty, a little earthy with lots of delightful cherry fruit - quite luscious after the first glass.
