1987 Chateau Lascombes Margaux

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) 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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1988 Vintage) Deep ruby / purple, with a moderately intense bouquet of cedar, plums, and currants, the 1988 Lascombes is a spicy, robustly-styled Margaux. Medium to full-bodied and well-balanced.

  • Robert Parker
    (From 2002 Vintage) "A candidate for one of the top wines of the vintage, Lascombes has turned in a brilliant effort with a deep ruby/purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of plums, cassis, black cherries, and flowers. It boasts a terrific texture, medium to full body, an expansive, multi-layered mid-palate and a tremendously pure finish revealing nicely integrated wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin. This is a beauty of precision and power. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020."
