Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

This sumptuous, rich, complex Margaux reveals a fragrant nose of cedarwood, spring flowers, spice box, black currants and earth. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins and a dense, plum/ruby/purple color, this fully mature 2003 can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($50) Excellent deep red. Very sexy, expressive aromas of plum and milk chocolate. Sweet, lush and ripe, with considerable power and thrust for the vintage. Very 2003 in its slightly roasted character but this boasts very good concentration and finishes with sweet, broad tannins and excellent length. Fleshy and evolved enough to give pleasure now, but should hold up well for the next 10 to 15 years. A Margaux standout in 2003.

Aromas of blackberry and chocolate follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. 17,500 cases made.

Wow ! This is a massive wine still very tannic, even after 4 hours of breathing. Difficult to taste past the tannins. I would leave it for another 3 - 5 years

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.
