Tasting Note:

Of the Thienpont/Derenoncourt duo of Larcis Ducasse and Pavie Macquin, the Larcis gets our nod. It is a unique style that we have come to expect from this fabulous terroir close to Chateau Pavie. Some might argue that these vineyards are in fact superior to those of the newly promoted 1er Grand Cru Classé 'A's. Deeply mineral notes mingle with aromas of very high quality fruit pastille. Intensely cassisy in character, this is exotic, but the acidity and tannins are classical and bring the wine into balance. The palate is packed with blackcurrants, dried fruits and herbs. Unique and utterly charming.
