  • Classic margaux but hard to compete given super vintage

  • 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.

  • I poured into a half bottle and decanted the remaining half. Nice and balanced, with a dry edge, still vigorous and stood up to food, but a lack of fruit made it a bit rough for me. The second night it started a bit smoother. but still a bit coarse. This was my last bottle and I'm not sure if waiting any longer would have improved it - I imagine the rough edge would mellow and the wine is focused enough to age well, but the lack of fruit may be a problem. Still, I enjoyed the wine.

  • 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.

    (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.
