Tasting Notes and Scores

92-93

Bordeaux Index

Larcis Ducasse has gone from strength to strength since the new winemaking team of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt took over in 2002. The estate is located on one of Bordeaux's finest strips of terroir - the Cote Pavie in St Emilion. Lovely balance of intense, cassis-powered fruit and cool, lithe minerality. Impressive nose with delineation and complexity. This chap is stacked and loaded with densely concentrated fruit, broad and mouth-filling tannins and a sweetly-fruited finish. - April 2018

92-94

Wine Advocate

The 2017 Larcis Ducasse is deep garnet-purple colored with a bombastic, gregarious nose of preserved plums, baked blackberries and mocha with hints of sautéed herbs, pencil lead and chargrilled meats plus a waft of yeast extract. The palate is big, rich and full-bodied with a very firm frame of chewy tannins and lashings of oak joining with opulent fruit, finishing long. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, erobertparker.com, April 2018

91-93

Neal Martin

The 2017 Larcis-Ducasse was cropped at 34hl/ha from 18 to 29 September for the Merlot and 29 September to 2 October for the Cabernet Franc. It has a very high-toned, iodine-tinged bouquet that just lacks the usual harmony, and certainly the cohesion that I discerned apropos the 2015 and 2016 vintages at this early stage. The palate is underpinned by fine tannin and here demonstrates much more harmony than the aromatics. The black fruit is flecked by black pepper and subtle fennel notes, the tannins are quite fine and the finish is much more linear and stricter than recent vintages. It is a more classically styled Larcis-Ducasse this year but it should age well. I expect it will land towards the upper end of my banded score.

Wine Spectator

Lovely blackberry and boysenberry puree flavors glide through, with suave toast, a pretty graphite note and a finely polished feel overall. - James Molesworth, winespectator.com, April 2018

James Suckling

This is a wine that is showing lots of structure with tightly wound tannins that spin through the center palate. Full-bodied, intense and beautiful. Pure and real.

Jancis Robinson

Deep crimson. Lifted and lots of red fruit, relatively light but silky and fresh. Falls away a little on the finish with a slight lack of fruit depth and follow through. - Julia Harding, jancisrobinson.com, April 2018

92-95

Antonio Galloni

The 2017 Larcis Ducasse is a rich, sensual wine, with softer contours and more plushness than is typically the case, part of which is attributable to the vintage and part of which is the result of gentler winemaking. Dark red cherry and plum fruit is nicely pushed forward in this succulent, racy Saint-Émilion. Mocha, licorice and menthol wrap around the juicy, pliant finish. The 2017 is an especially succulent, racy Larcis. It has been consistently brilliant on the four occasions I have tasted it so far. - vinous.com, May 2018
