About Chateau Lascombes
After a couple of decades of fits and starts, this Second Growth property in Margaux is back on point. Now wines are made in a distinctly modern style: fragrant, rich and sweet.

Good saturated ruby. Roasted black fruits, bitter chocolate, licorice, coffee, meat and a leesy note on the nose. Lush on entry, then juicy and tight in the middle, with flavors of blackberry and bitter chocolate. Spreads out nicely on the aftertaste, with tannins arriving late. The cabernet sauvignon, which comprises 55% of the blend, was harvested very late. Somewhat inscrutable now, and not quite as sweet as the '01 version. One to follow.
