The Story

Thanks to the rigour and all the meticulous care lavished on this growth on a daily basis, Château Lascombes can claim to be one of the top wines of Margaux. Both firm and unctuous in style, the wine has individual character and an ageing potential which enables cellaring for decades. The high proportion of Merlot in the blend also makes it very easy to enjoy during its first years.

Combining power and elegance and an unctuous and tannin-rich texture, Château Lascombes is a complex wine. In its youth, it always has an amazingly deep colour. On the palate, finesse and a rich texture combine with very stylish fine-grained tannins. 
Gradually over the years, Château Lascombes should be enjoyed again and again so as to fully appreciate its complexity of flavour and to see how its structure has developed a more and more suave mouth-feel.

Written Notes

Tasted in April and September 2016. Similar TNs. Big, full, complex, more concentration and power than usual. Precise and focused wine with pretty fruit and tannin.

  • 93p
Chateau Lascombes: Ripe blackberries, black fruit with liquorice, ripe tannin and medium full body, fresh and elegant with a hint of oak. It was more 'dark' and deep compare to 2014 vintage which was red fruit driven. 2014 was more fruity and fresher. 91-93
  • 92p
Deep colour. Dark cherry, vermouth, cassis aromas with vanilla notes. Sweet vanilla chocolaty flavours. Slightly sweet palate with cassis dark cherry fruit, sinewy tannins and underlying savoury oak, Finishes firm and tight. 92 points

 Markus Del Monego MW / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  tasted  Château Lascombes 2015  ( Château Lascombes )

"Deep purple red with violet hue and black core. Initially quite closed, this wine opens up quite well, concentrated fruit, blackcurrants and dark berries, discreet spiciness in the background. On the palate excellent mouthfeel and length in a very elegant style. "
