Winemakers Note

Château Larcis Ducasse, promoted to a Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé status in 2012, has belonged to the Gratiot- Attmane family since 1893. Starting in 2002, Nicolas Thienpont and David Suire have perpetuated the family’s efforts to produce quality wines, assisted by consultants Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu. Larcis Ducasse’s character is defined by its clay-limestone soil and south-facing sun-exposed slopes conducive to beautiful ripeness. The wines have a fresh, mineral flavour. Their complexity and structure are due to the varied nature of the parent rock, which goes from asteriated limestone on the plateau to feldspathic, iron-rich sandy soil at the foot of the slope. Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines are planted according to the profile of each part of the vineyard. Work in the vineyard is done meticulously. Fermentation takes place gently and then the wine is aged in barrel for a duration adapted to each vintage. The final blend from this superb terroir results in delicious, elegant and magnificently balanced wine. Area in production 9.80 ha Average age of the vineyard 35 years old Terroirs 10% of limestone-clay plateau on asteriated limestone, 55% of southfacing tarraces - very shallow loamy clay soils on asteriated limestone, 35% of limestone-clay colluvial soils on hillsides. Vineyard management Ongoing search for balances thanks to traditional light ploughing, spontaneous natural growth or inter-row planting. Continual programme of renovation of the vines: grubbing up, complantation and replanting. Numerous manual interventions: de-budding, leaf-thinning and green harvest. 100% hand-picked harvest. Yield 38.8 hl/ha Vatting 25-28 days Aging 16 to 18 months in barrels Barrels 50 % new, 50 % of 1 year
