Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Power Alliance and elegance, smoothness and rich tannins, Château Lascombes is a complex wine. Young, its deep color is always impressive. The palate combines finesse and soft tannins with a grain very noble. Over the years, we must rediscover Château Lascombes to fully appreciate its aromatic complexity and see change its structure, more suave.

    (2008 Vintage) "Another incredibly successful sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Lascombes confirms just how many top 2008s were produced. A dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a sexy, up-front perfume of forest floor, damp earth, blue and red fruits and a touch of spicy oak. Lush with low acidity and sweet tannin, it appears to be a bigger version of the stunning 2008 Malescot St.-Exupery. Drink it over the next 15 or more years – it is well-worth buying by the case."

    (2006 Vintage) 50% Merlot; 45% Cabernet Sauvignon; 5% Petit Verdot. A touch sweeter in scent owing to both obvious ripeness and an extra measure of rich oak, Lascombes intimates a sense of juiciness that separates it from its classmates in 2006. It is a touch dry at the finish, and its relatively fine-gained tannins afford it room to grow without adding prohibitive toughness.
