    September 12, 2020 - Decanted 90+ minutes got to this and was surprised how youthful it was. No way I would have guessed this is 20 years old and not lacking fruit as others have described as of late. Cassis, blackberry, coffee and clove all pretty modern in profile and lacking the traditional tertiary components I was hoping for. Medium+ weight, tannins very smooth at this time.

    August 4, 2020 - During a tasting. All bottles of this wine showed the perils of the Parker years. Late picking, extraction, lots of oak. The wine is tired, cooked fruit, oxidative streak, little aromas. Game over.

    June 8, 2020 - Nose of black berry, cigar box, saddle leather, and barnyard, on the palate, big body, mouth filling fruit, very tasty, secondary flavors, elegant, lovely to sip and savor, easily the best Lascombes ever tasted, long finish, lovely aftertaste. Photo uploaded.

    (Chateau Lascombes) This had a gorgeous nose of violets, red currants, spicey oak and dark cassis. Lush palate that really surpised me as to how accessible this was. Loads of bright tiny-berried dark fruits with nice minerality and seamless integration. Great finesse. Long finish. I had this out of a .375 so that maybe is why it is a touch advanced. Beautiful wine.
