"An impressive wine, the 2014 Larcis Ducasse speaks to pedigree. Beautifully layered and exquisite in the glass, the 2014 stands out for its exceptional polish and finesse. Sweet red cherry, red currant, rose petal and cinnamon are all laced together in a highly expressive, silky St.-Emilion built on nuance and precision. Super-finessed, silky tannins contribute to the wine's overall feeling of total sophistication. Over time, the 2014 gains weight and breadth, pointing to a very bright future. There is so much to like here. The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc."

The Château Larcis-Ducasses is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc cropped at 37.5 hectoliter per hectare between 1 and 14 October. It has a strangely “distant” nose that is difficult to engage with at first, then a wave of super-ripe crème de cassis and blueberry fruit whose purity cannot be denied. The palate is full-bodied with soft ripe tannins, plush in the mouth with well-judged acidity, a touch of mineralité on the finish. Again, this is a modern style of Saint Emilion delivered with oodles of panache. This will be no more, no less than "delicious". eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

This has a dark fruit, blueberry with limestone and mineral character. Raisin skin. Full body, firm tannins and a firm and long finish. Tannic and lively.

Features cherry, creamed strawberry and red licorice notes that seem almost too easy at first, but then the back half kicks in, with a chalky spine and extra energy. Pure and long.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.

Complete: a breadth of fruit on the nose. Creamy, and this follows in the mouth. A touch of depth, Refreshingly unforced. Good. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
