The 2017 vintage will have gone through several stages to give birth to great red wines. Despite a difficult start to the year the season unfolded in a remarkable way with dry weather until summer. The beautiful month of August will allow a very good development of the vine, and despite some rain in September, the good maturation of the grapes will be ensured, they will be rich and concentrated at harvest time.

Blend of the 2017 vintage : 92% Merlot, 8% Cabernet franc

The robe has a magnificent purple color, with brilliant garnet reflections.

The nose is deliciously expressive, with aromas of wild berries, menthol, roasted cocoa and truffle-like undergrowth.

This elegance continues in the mouth, where the wine offers a fleshy matter, a very beautiful fruity brightness and finely chiseled tannins. It evolves with a lot of freshness and volume, before blossoming on a long, powerful and particularly aromatic finish.

Food and wine pairing:

Château Larcis Ducasse 2017 would be a wonderful accompaniment to roast beef with a Périgord cep sauce accompanied by baked apples, veal chop à la Dijonnaise, roast duck, or a confit lamb mouse.

For a pairing with cheeses, choose soft cheeses with a bloomy rind: Brie, Brillat-savarin, Camembert, Chaource or Coulommiers.

For desserts, it will be particularly appreciated with a three chocolate dessert, profiteroles or an Opera cake.
