    February 4, 2019 - 2 hrs of decant. Fragrant and upfront, medium bodied, fine tannins. Great showing tonight.

    January 25, 2019 - I like it much, very Margaux. Need not wait for an hour, aroma of blueberries. Very mouthful. A good option for dinner with friends.

    January 17, 2019 - Flickinger Customer Appreciation Tasting (Casino Club - Chicago IL): Tasting, brief note. Ripe black fruit dominates. Nicely big and flat, but little else would emerge in this quick tasting. 89 points tonight, but is that representative?

    January 14, 2019 - early in it's drinking window
    soft rounded edges a surprise
    the french earth has integrated nicely
    fruit is cabernet sauvignon forward
    I am finding 2009 to be more approachable and to my liking compared with 2010

    January 12, 2019 - Decanted for 45 minutes. Deep purple/blue in color, this wine reveals aromas of tobacco, blackberry, blueberry and graphite. The mouth feel brought approachable tannins as well as coffee bean and cocoa elements. The finish is well balanced and long. 14% abv.

    Purchased for $99US, this was an impressive example of Margaux from a quality producer. It definitely leans to the modern style. It was the WOTN with my boss and his family at a local BYOB.

    Imported by Fruit of the Vines, Inc., Long Island City, NY.

    (Château Lascombes (Margaux)) There is the usual dense application of oak here, bringing that deep, toasty, new-barrel aroma to the nose of the wine. It has a spicy, sandalwood character, with darker, more spicy, soot and charcoal elements too. Underneath that I sense some fruit at least, but it is well hidden for now. The oak tannins also show up very quickly on the palate, coarser and more domineering than many of the tannins found elsewhere in this vintage. There is an attractive red fruit spice running through this wine, but it is hard to pick anything out from among the oak staves at present. The substance of the wine is very appealing though, supple and well filled out, with acidity and some savoury elements alongside the fruit. This will need a long time for the oak to integrate, but I suspect great potential here.

    (Chateau Lascombes Margaux) This is equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with 48% of each, with 4% Petit Verdot. A very dense and black-coloured wine with an intense, concentrated, dark and spicy character on the nose. A very polished palate, lots of power here, good fruit too. A creamy substance and texture, an upright although firm tannic core, and there is decent acidity too. Plenty of dry oak here too. A firmer quality to the tannins, but they still hold much promise. Not such a curveball as you might expect in this vintage, although there is still the élevage to come yet of course.
