Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89-92

(52% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot and 3% petit verdot) Good bright ruby. Blueberry and licorice on the nose, lifted by spicy oak. Chewy, lush and dense, but with a sappy quality giving shape to the fruit. Very tactile, solid wine with a saline quality suggesting energetic extraction. But this offers impressive mouth coverage and finishes broad and long, with nicely restrained sweetness. Wait until 2011.

A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-35 years.

Dark in color, with an impressive nose of licorice, toasty oak, chocolate and blackberry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very pretty and structured. 25,000 cases made.

Rich deep garnet color. Tannins chewy yet beginning to soften and allow the earthy, blackberry, and cassis to come out. A great bottle paired with a great meal of prime rib.

About This Producer


Named after its first owner, Chevalier de Lascombes, this Margaux ranked Second Growth vineyard produces powerful, tannic, yet elegant wines. Once owned by Chaix d'Est-Ange, a General to Napoleon III, Lascombes encountered a revival in the mid 20th century under the control of Alexis Lichine. Many decades later, Colony Capital bought the estate and controls the vineyard to date. Currently, the vines are comprised of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petite Verdot.

Lascombes produces a second wine, Chevalier des Lascombes, named after its original owner, with a fruitier flavor profile that requires less aging (about 5 to 10 years). The chateau also employs two second labels, Segonnes and La Gombaude, for its lesser wines.
