Chateau Larcis-Ducasse Saint Emilion 2014
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Wine SpectatorThis sports some dark fig and boysenberry confiture fruit, laced with a mulling spice hint. Waves of tobacco start to fill in on the back end before the fruit reemerges with a purer edge. A substantial chalky spine pulls everything together. Best from 2022 through 2032. 2,375 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Larcis-Ducasse has a lovely bouquet: quite complex compared to its Saint Emilion peers, adorned with rose petal notes complementing the cranberry and wild strawberry fruit, the oak neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry, brown spices and leather fusing with the red berries that segue into an atypically structured and classically styled finish that shows good length. This is an excellent Larcis-Ducasse that should give 20 years of drinking pleasure, possibly more.
Wine Enthusiast86-88. Barrel Sample. Dense and smoky, this wine all about its structure. It doesn't leave much room for any fruit, making it is tough and bitter.
