Château Larcis-Ducasse is located in the historic area of the Plateau and the Grande Côte where the majority of Saint-Emilion's Premiers Grand Cru wines are located. The vineyards of Château Larcis-Ducasse enjoy a terroir with exceptional natural qualities. The grouped plots of 11 hectares in total are located on the west side of Château Pavie and north of Castle Troplong Mondot. Larcis-Ducasse has the top of the famous Pavie hill (Côte Pavie) and has a beautiful position, fully south facing with a view of the Dordogne valley. A very favorable position for perfect ripening of the grapes, because the climatic extremes are tempered. Sheltered from the north wind and protected by the river, the valuable vines are not exposed to frost or heat waves. The grapes are given the opportunity to fully ripen while their freshness and fruit are fully preserved thanks to the interaction of warm summer days with cool nights under the influence of the Dordogne river.
The Château Larcis Ducasse vineyards are planted with approximately 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc at a density of 6000 vines per hectare with an average age of 35 years.
