  • 2012 Ch. Larcis Ducasse, Grand Cru Classé, St. Emilion

    At Larcis Ducasse er et af de allerbedste slotte til altid at balancere vinen efter årgangens vejrforhold, er 2012 et flot eksempel på. Her er både til gården og til gaden: Meget varierede frugttoner i en tæt og rig stil balanceret af frisk syre i en årgang med moderate temperaturer, uden de senere års hyppige varmebølger. Vinen struktureres af tanniner, der er finkornede og modne. "Gorgeous": James Suckling. "En af årgangens store stjerner": Robert Parker. Vil fortsat udvikle sig i årevis.

    Drink Date2015 - 2035Reviewed byRobert M. Parker, Jr.Issue Date30th Apr 2015Source218, The Wine AdvocateThis great terroir, long owned by the Gratiot family, has come to life under the inspired winemaking of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt. Some recent vintages have been legendary efforts, especially 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The 2012 (83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc) is right in the competition, with an inky, opaque, bluish/purple color, gorgeously sweet, rich nose of black raspberries, black cherries and currants, and licorice. The wine hits the palate with a full-bodied, thunderous effect. This blend tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol, which is indicative of its fabulously exposed vineyard on a full, steep limestone slope with a primarily southern exposure. This is full-bodied, ripe and one of the great stars of the vintage û again. The wine has full-bodied texture, gorgeous purity, richness and length. Drink it over the next 20 years.

    Score: 95 Points8 Feb, 2015 û This shows so much class and balance with blackberry and mushroom character. Some wet earth. It makes you want to drink it! Fine and ripe tannins. Gorgeous. Drink in 2018.

    Holding a lot in reserve, flowers, chocolate covered cherries, plum and licorice are right there, if you know where to look. Soft, polished tannins and a ripe, pit fruit filled complete the wine.Tasted Mar 12, 2017

    Dark and winey, with steeped currant, macerated plum and warm boysenberry coulis flavors, laced with licorice snap and roasted apple wood notes. The charcoal edge is buried on the finish, with a lingering minerality. Lots going on here. Needs time. Best from 2017 through 2027. 2,330 cases made. ù JM Tasted 2015.
