Tasted both at the chateau and then blind at Farr Vintners' tasting, the 2006 Chateau Larcis Ducasse is maturing nicely, far better than the Beausejour 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 Beausejour Duffau-Lagarosse. Tasted February 2016. May 2016, www.robertparker.com
