Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87-90

Bright, deep ruby. Sappy aromas of blackberry, violet and espresso. Slightly medicinal but sweet flavors of boysenberry and blackberry. Has a firm spine. This will ultimately merit a score at the higher end of my range if the slightly gritty tannins are refined during elevage Under the direction of Alain Raynaud, the new American owners of this huge chateau did a strict selection of the best barrels for their 2000 grand vin.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The first superb Lascombes in nearly 35 years, this generous, deep ruby/purple-colored 2000 does not possess the complexity or finesse of the 2001, but offers plenty of perfumed, smoky licorice, black currant, and cherry fruit in a medium-bodied, long, concentrated style with no hard edges. While it possesses a more muscular, tannic character than the 2001, it is clearly the finest wine made at this estate since their classic 1966 and 1970.

Pleasant wine. Plenty of blackberry and currants, with hints of vanilla. Medium-bodied, with lovely, finely knit tannins and a long, berry and vanilla aftertaste. 18,885 cases made.

really very nice. good depth and quite smooth - seems like it aged to just the right level. Tannins were just right. Better after 2 hour open - good on 2nd day.

Tasted 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2005 Lascombes. 2000 was still tight with good structure and should have promise with time.

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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
