The 2005 Larcis Ducasse is one of the great surprises of this retrospective of nearly two hundred 2005s. A wine of shocking intensity, power and structure, the 2005 is still an infant. Inky dark fruit, gravel, lavender, leather and spice all hit the palate. In the glass, the 2005 is marvelously deep, rich and dark. I am not sure if the tannins will ever fully soften, but so what? The 2005 Larcis Ducasse is an epic wine that shows just how magical this estate is. Superb. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2021)

Let it open for about 4 hours and then deep, rich fruit. Cassis, chewy tannins and hint of violet. Lovely

Still very youthful & tight like most 05’s showing lots of black fruits, graphite, licorice & violets. Not sure this will rise to reach RP 100 pt score but will need a min of another 5 - 10 years.

2005 was a little musty, a little earthy with lots of delightful cherry fruit - quite luscious after the first glass.
