> 1989 Larcis Ducasse - Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

1989 Larcis Ducasse : Ruby colour with some orange on the rim. Animal nose with spiced flavours and mocha. Nice initial fruity palate and coating tannins. The body however lacks of wideness and texture. Pleasant average length finish, which preserves well the fruit's freshness. Start drinking now. 85/100. 

> 1999 Larcis Ducasse - Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

1999 Larcis Ducasse : Relatively light and luminous ruby hue. Very delicate nose, ripe fruit and violet. The mouth is well balanced with fine tannins. Slight wood interference due to the relatively low proportion of new barrels used. 1999 Larcis Ducasse is a delicate and smooth type of wine. 86/100. 
Nicolas Thienpont took over the operational management of Chateau Larcis-Ducasse in 2000. His objective is to improve the production's quality by increasing the proportion of new barrels. In the last couple of years, together with winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt, huge efforts have been implemented by introducing more rigourous production process. Thienpont wants to take advantage of the Chateaux' most valuable "Côte sud" vineyards (fully exposed to the south) which give tremendous wines. Larcis Ducasse is an estate  to follow up very closely in the future!
