Deep garnet and brick edges. A little bit of plums on the nose with undertones of dark dried cherries and leaves. A bit earthy too. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Dry palate with earthy characteristics, twigs, and dark berries. Long and dry finish. Drink till 2030. (92+)

Monday night enjoying this St. Emilion 2014 Chateau Larcis Ducasse. This Right Bank Bordeaux over performs. This is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, as you know I love my Cabernet Franc and this 15% drew me in with the Merlot to make up my mind and purchase this gem.

The aromas are very expressive with blackberry, blueberry, red cherry, red currant, black currant, licorice, herbaceous notes, sweet tobacco, menthol, rose petal and rich dark earth.

The palate is delicious, sumptuous and well integrated with red cherry, raspberry, blackberry, red currant, herbal notes, bell pepper and smokey oak.

A beautiful full bodied, medium + acidity, sweet silky smooth medium + tannins with a long rich finish.

What a way to start the week. I hope everyone has an exciting week and in doing so please stay safe. Nostrovia!🍷🍷🍷🍷

Fairly typical and robust right bank nose. Finishes lean on the palate

All the roads lead to an aged Bordeaux. Only 2 bottles left and I really wish I would still have a whole case of this wine as it's simply so divine. Pure velvet in a glass. The kind of wine that makes you like wine even more.

Super silky entry, nicely balanced with aromas of cassis, bing cherries, orange peel, cedar and tea leaves.

Bit hot, but has nice integration of flavor for being so young.
