More About This Wine
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.

(52% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot and 3% petit verdot) Good bright ruby. Blueberry and licorice on the nose, lifted by spicy oak. Chewy, lush and dense, but with a sappy quality giving shape to the fruit. Very tactile, solid wine with a saline quality suggesting energetic extraction. But this offers impressive mouth coverage and finishes broad and long, with nicely restrained sweetness. Wait until 2011.
