    (Chateau Lascombes Margaux) Lascombes carries its usual raft of sweet and charry oak on the nose, over the expected dense, perfumed, rather admirable layer of dark berry fruits. With a rather toasty character it is hard not to admire it, even though the oak heavily dominates. And although sweetly fruited, there is a trace of a stony, gravelly perfume that is more typical of the appellation. The palate is, I have to admit, really rather fine. Yes there is a huge core of chargrilled oak but there is also some very aromatic red fruit, with a pure and lifted style, and good fresh acidity too. There is also a prodigious mouth-puckering core of tannins, and so this and the oak will demand this wine be left in the cellar for another 10-15 years at least. In the finish there are notes of perfume too, violets, elegance behind the power. An excellent effort and so much more defined than the 2004 vintage which I tasted here last year (and which was perhaps just not showing very well?).

    (Chateau Lascombes Margaux) The density of aromas wipes the floor with some other wines of the appellation; this has a super-expressive nose, loaded with dark, concentrated, tight fruit with pickling spice complexity. I expected something modern, ripe and fleshy on the palate, but instead it has a slightly hard style, with lots of fruit but also showing a rather bony structure. The aromatics are delightful but this will take a long time to come around on the palate, but if the fruit lasts with the tannins this will be great.
