=> De jaargang 2022 is een uitmuntend jaar. En daarbinnen heb je Larcis Ducasse die nóg ‘uitmuntender’ is ... Het ontbreekt ons eerlijk gezegd aan superlatieven. Maar het moge duidelijk zijn, dat wij voor de volle 100% overtuigd zijn van deze fenomenale wijn. Bovendien: voor de prijs van één fles Pavie koopt u bijna een kist Larcis-Ducasse.

"Potentiële 100/100 wijn | Buurman van Pavie"

Goede wijn behoeft geen krans, luidt het gezegde. Dan zouden we over Larcis Ducasse niks hoeven te schrijven. Maar uiteraard kunnen we ons enthousiasme niet bedwingen en willen we u graag deelgenoot maken van deze meesterlijke wijn.

Château Larcis Ducasse is een relatief kleine bezitting met 11,3 ha wijngaarden op hetzelfde terroir als buurman Château Pavie (Premier GCC ‘A’). Het is eigendom van de familie Gratiot-Attmane, maar de dagelijkse leiding is sinds 2002 in handen van Nicolas Thienpont. Binnen tien jaar na de aanstelling van Thienpont promoveerde Larcis Ducasse naar Premier Grand Cru Classé. Ook in de herziene classificatie die geldt vanaf 2022 is Larcis één van de slechts 14 top geklasseerde châteaus.

Kenner Jane Anson schreef in 2020 al: ‘This is one of my tips for fastest-rising estates, really delivering exciting wines with something to say’.

En dan komt oogstjaar 2022 waarin Larcis Ducasse een overweldigend goede Saint-Emilion maakt. Dat vinden wij niet alleen. Dat vinden ook de internationale critici: Jeb Dunnuck (voormalig redacteur voor Parker) geeft de topscore van (98-100)/100. Hoger gaat niet, Larcis-Ducasse vormt dan ook de TOP 10 beste Bordeaux 2022 wijnen die hij proefde en dit kan straks op fles zomaar uitkomen op de perfecte score van 100/100.

Ook Jeff Leve van The Wine Cellar Insider ziet dit als een potentiële 100/100 wijn: ‘I would not be surprised to see this score even higher once it is in the bottle.’ (97-99/100).

Antonio Galloni (oprichter van Vinous) selecteerde Larcis Ducasse voor zijn Most Exciting Wines of 2022 selectie met châteaus die de al bijzonder hoge overall kwaliteit van de jaargang nóg eens overtreffen. Hij noteert daarbij over Larcis Ducasse: ‘A wonderful showing from what might be the single most under-the-radar property in Bordeaux.’

This is really precise with a lazer-guided fine tannin structure throughout the wine, and juicy and electric texture. It’s so refined and polished. Endless. Wonderful young wine with a terrific future.

A fleshy, opulent wine, the 2022 Larcis Ducasse bursts with aromas of rich, creamy berry fruit mingled with aromas of licorice, bay leaf and spices. Full-bodied, broad and enveloping, it's a textural, layered wine with a ripe core of fruit, supple tannins and an expansive finish. More dramatic and unabashed than the 2020, this will appeal to readers who place a premium on flamboyant extravagance; but samples tasted later during my visit to Bordeaux exhibited greater freshness and precision.

Tasted on multiple occasions and one of the legendary wines in the making from this vintage, the 2022 Château Larcis Ducasse clocks in as 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc that's still resting in 55% new French oak. A hypothetical blend of the 2005 and 2018, it's a deep, powerful, opulent Saint-Emilion offering an incredible array of black cherries, blackberries, smoked tobacco, chocolate, and graphite-driven aromas and flavors. With a rich, full-bodied, expansive mouthfeel, it has ultra-fine tannins, beautiful symmetry in its tannins, acidity, and fruit, no hard edges, and a killer finish. I was lucky enough to taste this on four separate occasions and I thought it had the potential to be a perfect wine every time.

A blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Larcis Ducasse is deep garnet-purple in color. It wows as it powers out of the glass with bright, expressive notes of juicy blackberries, fresh black cherries, and warm plums, followed by suggestions of Indian spices, iron ore, iris bulb, and crushed rocks. The full-bodied palate is laden with rich, seductive, and amazingly energetic black and blue fruits, framed by super-ripe, velvety tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with epic length.
This 2022 is a triumph!

The 2022 Larcis Ducasse is a huge, inky wine. A firm backbone of structure lies behind all of that opulence, yielding a wine that is both extravagantly rich and super-classic. That’s a pretty appealing combination in my book. Dark red-toned fruit, spice, leather, tobacco, incense and mocha emerge, but only with great reluctance. The 2022 is packed to the core. I don’t imagine it will be ready to drink anytime soon, but
is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. The blend is 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc, a bit more Franc than usual, aging in equal parts 225- and 500-liter barrels. Tasted four times.

You feel the fingerprint of the limestone here, from a team that is never afraid of austerity in a young wine is young. It opens to show creamy black and red fruits, with steely acidity that keeps the ripeness in check. 34hl/h yield, 50% new oak and for the rest 500l casks for ageing.

The dark, purple hue stands out. Licorice, smoke, oyster shell, espresso, black cherries, and plums are all over the perfume. The wine explodes from the glass with its layers of opulent, black and red fruits, dark chocolate, espresso, smoke and chocolate on the palate. Full-bodied, powerful, and most importantly pure, there is a depth of flavor, and richness on the mid-palate that sticks with you through to the extended, mineral-driven finish.
I would not be surprised to see this score even higher once it is in the bottle. The wine blends 86% Merlot with 14% Cabernet Franc, 14.6% ABV, 3.5 pH. The harvest took place September 13-September 23. Yields were 34 hectoliters per hectare.

Deep dark ruby, opaque core, purple reflections, brightening on the rim. Fresh black cherries, some liquorice, floral nuances, cool, attrractive bouquet. Juicy, elegant and balanced, fine ripe fruit, good structure, long lasting, already very harmonious, great ageing potential.

Smells gorgeous, black fruits, milk chocolate and floral notes. Supple and lively, crystalline and pure, you get both the juicy, fleshiness of the dark and concentrated fruit but with tension and detail and definition. Clarity and bite, this really works and delivers everything you want in terms of tannins, minerality, freshness and density. Clearly powerful, but refined and sophisticated. Compelling and oh so drinkable. Wet stones, the minerality is gorgeous but the weight is too, this will be fantastic.

This has quite a rich bouquet with opulent black cherries, boysenberry and blue fruit, vanilla extract and truffle scents. Two samples tasted, the one at the château showing more precision. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet tannins, its flesh belying the structure underneath. Liquorice lingers after the wine has departed. The mineralité floods the finish and articulates its limestone soils with aplomb. This is a seriously fine Larcis Ducasse that exudes panache.
