    September 21, 2019 - Round, fleshy, ripe and with a strong espresso and smoke character to the ripe, dense, dark fruits, give this concentrated, lush round time in the cellar for everything to come together. Perhaps 10 years or more will be about right.

    August 24, 2019 - Great Bordeaux 2016 Tasting: Drawing bouquet of riped plums and blackcurrants. Tasted black fruits, black cherries, riped plums, creme. Slightly austere. Not bad but I would give this at least 3 more years.

    March 7, 2019 - Very intense, yet lacked definition. Not my style.

    February 10, 2019 - Dark in color, fleshy round, ripe and rich, with a healthy dose of oak, smoke, licorice and black cherries. The wine is concentrated, long and fleshy.

    January 26, 2019 - Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2016 Vintage Tasting (Las Vegas, NV): The 2016 Lascombes is a heavily-extracted, opaque crimson bruiser that is laden with blackberry, boysenberry, dark chocolate and licorice on both the nose and palate. Full-bodied, fresh, seamlessly alcoholic and with excellent purity of fruit, it wraps its flavors with abundant sweet tannins, has impressive mid-palate density and concludes with a lengthy finish that carries some tannic grip. Give this outstanding wine several years in the cellar. It has a very bright future and may merit a higher score once all of the components have melded. Drink 2026-2046.
