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.
88-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011
(50% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot and 5% petit verdot Very deep, almost inky ruby. Perfumed aromas of red cherry, dark plum, flowers and cedar, plus a whiff of menthol. Juicy, sweet and nicely deep, with red cherry, blackberry and underbrush flavors carrying through to the long finish. The wine's tannins are firm but polished, and its bright, harmonious acids leave an impression of freshness and refinement that I don't always associate with Lascombes.
