The 2008 Larcis Ducasse (14.2% natural alcohol) is composed of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc. Although closed at present and less prodigious than I predicted two years ago, it reveals an opaque purple color, plenty of sweet fruitcake, black currant, kirsch, forest floor and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannins and a long finish. It just does not appear to have the extra gear or two I tasted from barrel. Nevertheless, it is an outstanding wine and if it is priced fairly, it should be a definite purchase to enjoy over the next 20+ years.

Wild and rich, with mushroom, foie gras and intense fruits. Lots of Cabernet Franc character. Full and silky, with a wonderful texture and a long caressing finish. This is chewy too. Give it four to five years of bottle age. Structured. Impressive.
