About

96

The 2017 Larcis Ducasse is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Pliant and deep, with terrific fruit purity, Larcis possesses striking fruit purity and tons of resonance. Red cherry, blood orange, pomegranate, mint, spice, licorice and mocha infuse the 2017 with striking complexity as well as nuance. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. Larcis is never one of the most obvious wines in Saint-Émilion, but it is often among the most regal. Best of all, Larcis remains one of the best values anywhere in the world.

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. Drink after 2025.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Larcis Ducasse (a blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc) has a very enticing nose of kirsch, warm blackberries, baked plums and wild blueberries with hints of pencil lead, tar, tilled soil and forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly knit with great poise and subtlety, offering bright, energetic fruit and loads of minerally sparks, finishing with great length.

A blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Larcis Ducasse is medium to deep garnet colored. It soars from the glass with fragrant notes of rose oil, Morello cherries, redcurrant preserves, and raspberry leaves, followed by suggestions of Ceylon tea, fallen leaves, cardamom, and lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate is soft, graceful, and caressing, delivering just enough freshness to the perfumed red fruits, finishing with a soft-spoken intensity.
