    August 26, 2019 - I share the views of some others tasters......a little disappointing. Somewhat one-dimensional. Not a lot going on. Expected more from the price point. It took a while to open up (2+ hours without a decant).

    July 28, 2019 - Deep purple colour. Blackberry nose. The nose translates onto the palate where it is joined by more intense cassis, dark berries and (strangely?) a streak of olive tapenade. This is big and luscious with a lot of primary fruit still in the mix. Not bad, I was just expecting a more refined experience.

    July 27, 2019 - Enjoyed this. Black fruit and hints of graphite and carbon. Paired with unsauced, smoked brisket and matched the bark on the brisket nicely. Also had a good tannin balance to handle the fat. Seems well integrated. Wish I had another one to try. Decanted for around 15 min. I wouldn’t wait too much longer, suggest drink by 2022 personally.

    July 5, 2019 - Nose of black fruits, riped plums. Tasted riped black fruits which anchors on palate, with a slight bitter finish. Whilst this is still young, the foundations are there for a bright future. Memorable bottle - I am keen to pop another one in 3-5 years.

    June 22, 2019 - This exceeded expectations. I've had my fair share of vintages of this but this might be the best, even better than the case of '05 I had. This is delicious with lovely sweetness, but also power and elegance. Sophisticated, lovely black fruit. A bit pricey but it does deliver.

    (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.
