    (Chateau Lascombes (Margaux)) This is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. It is a very dark wine with a concentrated black-plum hue that goes right out to the rim. The fruit is explosive on the nose, which is loaded with sweet confit cherry, in a really rather intense and also lifted, perfumed fashion. None of the trademark oak at present. On the palate it is certainly showing a lot of structure, but also there is a finely judged layer of fruit trying its best to cover this up. It more or less succeeds. And there is a little whisky-fermentation note still here too, but we should ignore that. The substance of the wine actually feels well judged, albeit on the heavily worked side in terms of structure. This may do well with time but there is the élevage yet to come of course. Tannins just a touch chewy on the finish.
