Wine Advocate

"95 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: ""This 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 - again. The wine has full-bodied texture, gorgeous purity, richness and length. Drink it over the next 20 years."""

Antonio Galloni

"95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: ""A deep, powerful wine, the 2012 Larcis Ducasse is holding much of its obvious pedigree and potential close to the vest. Smoke, dark cherry, licorice, spice and leather emerge as this exquisitely layered Saint-Emilion opens up in the glass. The 2012 is deep, virile and intense for the year, but it also needs time to fully emerge. Smoke, game, tobacco, licorice and incense add nuance on the powerful, virile finish. One of the most promising wines of the year, the 2012 Larcis Ducasse has it all going on. Today, the 2012 comes across as understated, but there is plenty of density as well as potential in the glass."" 1/16."

James Suckling

"95 Points, James Suckling: ""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."" 02/15"
