Tasted both at the château and then blind at Farr Vintners' tasting, the 2006 Château Larcis Ducasse is maturing nicely, far better than the Beauséjour Duffau Lagarrosse that I tasted side by side. It has plenty of ripe black cherry, strawberry pastille and creme de cassis on the nose, quite opulent for the vintage and well defined. The palate is medium bodied with fine tannin cloaked in ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit; underlying all of this is a seam of cold stone that imparts freshness and satisfying tension on the finish. This is well worth seeking out and is performing at a much higher level than the 2006 Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarosse. Tasted February 2016. - Neal Martin

Soil-driven aromas of blueberry licorice minerals dark chocolate and iron. Juicy spicy and penetrating with a lovely light touch to the flavors of black fruits spices mocha minerals and flowers. An elegant aromatic very sexy wine with terrific energy and lift from calcaire I love the suave texture on display here. Finishes very long and perfumed with firm but perfectly buffered tannins and lingering notes of red berries and minerals. 91(+?) points

Very pleasant palate with a lush soft entry building in power on the mid-palate. Nice structure with bold dark fruits. Finish a bit shorter than the 2005.
