Tasting Notes

"This dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 exhibits a stunning bouquet of black fruits, spring flowers and confiture of cherries, raspberries, spice and earth. Complete from beginning to end, this medium-bodied 2011 does not possesses as much power as the 2005, 2009 or 2010, but it is a highly successful effort for the vintage. Moreover, it can be drunk early on as it is a delicious, complex St.-Emilion that should last 10-15 years. This is a final blend of 78% Merlot, and 22% Cabernet Franc cropped at 21 hectoliters per hectare." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/29/2014, Issue 212), Ratings: 90, Drink: 2014-2029

"The wine exhibits a distinctive peppery, slightly herbaceous, exotic nose that initially is difficult to fathom. This rich, medium-bodied 2011 continues with a certain herbaceous streak that runs through the flavors. Nevertheless, there is impressive ripeness, concentration and density, and the tannins are velvety and well-integrated. If the green, peppery character calms down somewhat, my score should climb into the low 90s. However, this is not one of the top Larcis Ducasses made in the last 7-8 years.

An Originl effort, Larcis Ducasse's 2011 is different from the great vintages that have been produced since 2005. This spectacular terroir on the Cote Pavie encompasses 25 acres with an average vine age of 35 years. Yields were a tiny 21 hectoliters per hectare in 2011, and the final blend was 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate (4/25/2012, Issue 200), Ratings: 89-93, Drink: 2014-2029
