    March 6, 2019 - Nicely aromatic with wood in there. Retains a nice acidic backbone. On the black fruit side and an easy tasty glug glug, but like most 2003's, it ultimately lacks complexity. That said, I have come more and more to think that the generous and clear fruit simplicity of the 2003's also allows the wines to as best they can impressively reflect tipicity - varietal, terroir, and blend. The Lascombes cepage is a bit heavy on Cab, and my guess is that the wine reflects it. Although Merlot is part of the picture, I don't see it in this wine.

    February 21, 2019 - 2nd Growth Bordeaux (Boston): Medium-dark red. Fruit-forward and well-balanced tannins.

    January 21, 2019 - Our first bottle from a case that hasn’t been touched since 2006. Upon opening was super gamy with lots of forest floor. After 75 minutes decanted totally changed. Was absolutely wonderful with grilled filet. Great fruit, integrated tannins and a long finish. 94 May be conservative.

    (Chateau Lascombes Margaux) Exotic nose, pickling spices, and a great depth of fruit. This is distinctive and certainly denotes a wine of quality. Full, creamy presence on the palate, with firm, ripe, peppery tannins which show particularly on the endpalate. Decent acidity. It doesn't show much Margaux character, but is ripe, well-knit and certainly impressive. Despite criticism surrounding lack of typicité, I certainly prefer this to the Lascombes of old.
