Château Larcis Ducasse

Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

Nez typique bordelais, tabac, graphite, un peu de sous-bois. En bouche on reconnait le millésisme un peu vert, mais cela s’estompe fil de la soirée. En bouche, on retrouve le tabac, boite à cigare, mine à crayon, C’est bien, rien n’accroche mais il n’y pas ce petit oumff des grandes années bordelaises. Finale de longueur moyenne, tannins fondus. — 2 months ago

Blanc Graves Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2019

At 16$ this is drinking like a wine that should cost 2-3 times that. Deliciously crisp, huge floral bouquet and soft white orchard fruit. — 3 months ago

Château Beauregard Ducasse

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Lighter red color than I expected. Kinda a dark rose color. Nose is pencils and damp granite gravel river bed. And cherry Coke. Flavors are very dry and the whole classroom pencil sharpener. Also has rose petals and black chocolate mixed with anise and charred meats. Hint of blood. — 10 months ago

Nicolas Thienpont

Chateau La Prade Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Nicolas Thienpont is a great winemaker at 3 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classés Beauséjour HDL, Pavie Macquin and Larcis Ducasse +Grand Cru Classé Berliquet + a few estates in the Côtes de Bordeaux). This Côtes de Francs is probably the most humble in his stable, but it's a very serious wine. A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, it features a dark red colour colour with a purplish rim, a complex nose with blueberry and strawberry fruit, flowers and cocoa powder. The fruit is packed in a tight ripe tannic structure, with balancing acidity and serious length. I would recommend to give this overachiever a few years of bottle age. Abv. 14,5%. Great value at 12,90 euro. — 4 days ago

Graves Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2017

Lime zest, white flowers, green apple, wax, and crushed rock. Simple, zesty and delicious. The weight of the semillon (60%) pairs well with the aromatics of the sav blanc (40%). This screams for oysters. — 5 months ago

Château Ducasse

White Bordeaux Blend 2019

Lemon peel, green apple, and a touch of green note...peas or green beans perhaps. Underripe yellow fruit on the palate with mouthwatering acidity. Delicious, poolside quaffer for sure. — 2 months ago

Château Hourtin-Ducasse

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Dried cherry, forest berry, currant, sage, and cardamon. Crunch cranberry and red currant fruit transitions to herbal tea and tobacco aromas. Medium tannin with a sense of minerality on a chalky dry finish. Paired with homemade caneles. — 9 months ago

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

9.5

Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

Delicious black fruit. More complexity and depth than the Grand Puy Ducasse.
