Chateau Lascombes - Margaux - Grand Cru Classe

About This Item

Overview:  The Château Lascombes vineyard is made up of the most sought-after plots in Margaux, composed of a unique mix of soil-types for this appellation. The vineyard is divided into three distinct blocks of roughly the same surface area: a gravelly outcrop planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, a block of clay-gravel made up of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and finally clay-limestone plots, where the Merlot finds its optimal expression. Interestingly, Merlot is the predominant variety in the vineyard’s grape composition, making up 50% of the total, a unique feature in the Margaux appellation. Combining power and elegance, smoothness and tannins, Château Lascombes is a wine of great complexity. In its youth, its depth of colour never fails to impress. Finesse and softness on the palate are complemented by stylish, fine-grained tannins. Château Lascombes should be enjoyed as it ages over the years to enable full appreciation of its aromatic complexity and the development of its ever-more suave structure in bottle.

Tasting Notes:  Combining power and elegance, smoothness and tannins, Château Lascombes is a wine of great complexity. In its youth, its depth of colour never fails to impress. Finesse and softness on the palate are complemented by stylish, fine-grained tannins. Château Lascombes should be enjoyed as it ages over the years to enable full appreciation of its aromatic complexity and the development of its ever-more suave structure in bottle. The entry on the palate is clean and at the same time soft and velvety. The mid-palate is dense, powerful and elegant with well-ripened black fruits. The oak, though present, comes through with finesse and is subtly integrated in the wine. The tannins are silky. The finish is long. Wonderful complexity.

Pairing:  Any game would pair perfectly with this wine.
