Wine Description

(1990 Vintage) Nose of blackcurrant and toasty french oak. Tastes of blackberries, blackcurrant and violets. A bit on the bretty side for my tastes. Nicely balanced with lots of acidity. Not showing much complexity on the mid palate or finish to merit an outstanding score.

    (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.
