Cool vibrant aromas of blueberry blackberry violet menthol and licorice along with a whiff of currant leaf. Silky on entry then supple fat and harmonious with a distinctly lush texture and enticing sucrosite Highly aromatic very pure flavors of black fruits plum violet and licorice. Long palate-staining finish features solid underlying structure and late-arriving tannins. The vineyard produced just 35 hectoliters per hectare according to manager Nicolas Thienpont but that's partly because a lot of vines are missing (Thienpont is in the midst of replacing these vines with the same rootstocks.)

An outstanding effort from the dynamic winemaking duo of Stephane Derenoncourt and Nicolas Thienpont the 2004 Larcis Ducasse (78% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon) possesses complex aromatics of damp forest floor cedar cinnamon kirsch liqueur black currants and roasted coffee. Soft supple tannin low acidity and an expansive fleshy medium to full-bodied mouthfeel result in a seductive complex delicious claret. Only 3300 cases were produced from this great terroir that has an unbelievable exposition.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2007
Intense flavors of very ripe fruit with a decadent earthy meaty undertone. Full-bodied with soft tannins and a long concentrated finish. A solid wine with a wonderful texture. The new Larcis-Ducasse. Best after 2010.
