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.

($80-$89) Deep red-ruby. Wild nose combines currant, blackberry, coffee, mocha, cedary oak and a light weedy quality. Lush and rather exotic in the mouth, with the liqueur-like quality carrying through. Not at all overly sweet but a distinctly supple and fine-grained style of 2006. Finishes with very ripe tannins and lovely persistence. Accessible already but with the stuffing to age.
