Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé.

Bordeaux will long remember the great 2005 vintage, a general success for the whole vineyard. The weather was characterized by an exceptional drought as well as by strong heat in spring and summer, without excess. These conditions were therefore favorable to the development of the vine cycle, where all the stages were perfectly executed until the grapes reached an exceptional maturity in September.

The color is intense and deep red, tinged with tile-like nuances.

The nose opens with splendid notes of black fruits, blackcurrant cream and truffle, enhanced by touches of black ink and light tobacco.

In the mouth, it combines freshness, minerality and balance. The melted and structured tannins make it rise crescendo in aromatic power where it offers many delicious flavors of ageing: smoked, caramel and small red fruits. Carried by a nice acidity, it ends on a long persistent and racy finish.

Food and wine pairing :

Château Larcis Ducasse 2005 can be paired with a Châteaubriand with a truffle sauce, a stuffed saddle of lamb, a fillet of beef in brioche, all types of small game such as a jugged hare and wild rabbit, or a leg of boar confit.

For a match with cheeses, prefer uncooked pressed cheeses, notably morbier with truffles, Saint-Nectaire, cantal and matured mimolette.

Finish it off with a delicious chocolate dessert such as a chocolate praline mousse, a entremet, or a carrot cake.

Ageing potential and tasting :

Château Larcis Ducasse 2005 is a nectar from an exceptional vintage, and can easily wait in the cellar for another 10 years, and it will undoubtedly reach its peak between 2030 and 2033.

However, it lends itself wonderfully to tasting today. To do so, take to open the bottle at room temperature, 6 to 7 hours if possible before tasting. A decanting is possible but gently, after 1 hour of opening.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar protected from the light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
