2000 Château Lascombes

Community Tasting Note


91 Points

Saturday, March 7, 2020 - Similar to my previous notes (copied below). The wine continues to drink well and I personally don't find any lack of fruit, contrary to other notes. Perhaps I was lucky with the two cases purchased. My last two bottles. I don't feel there is any need to drink up, but equally this isn't going to get any better.

The nose is clean with pronounced aromas of cooked dark fruit (cassis, blackberry, plum), dried fruit (prune, fig), slight green note (blackcurrant leaf, mint), oak (vanilla, clove, sweet spice), spice (liquorice), tertiary (leather, cedar, cigar box, game, truffle). The wine is fully developed.
The palate is dry with medium acidity, medium ripe fine tannins, medium alcohol, medium (+) body, pronounced intensity flavours of cooked blackcurrant, prune, fig, clove, vanilla, leather, game, cedar, truffle. The finish is long.
