Robert Parker Wine Advocate #200 Apr 2012 (89-93) Drink: 2012 - 2020.
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 original 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.
James Suckling 91-92
Blackberries and black truffles on the nose. Complex. Full body, with a lively acidity that turns to orange peel and dark fruits. Minerally and chalky on the palate. Lively finish.
