Lascombes - Château Lascombes
  • Dark blackish purple. I'd hate to be given this blind. It's pure Napa Valley! So sweet! So concentrated! Not really Margaux but a mouthful of concentration, certainly. Drying finish with a slight suggestion of something underripe on the very end. Extremely different from most of its neighbours but the style will definitely appeal to some palates. Just goes a bit dead on the end.

  • Full, focused and precise with dark berries, intensely fine tannins and a fresh finish. Medium to full body and a persistent finish. More refined than in the past, yet it remains very well structured.

  • Solidly built, with a note of baker’s chocolate adding heft to the mix of plum and blackberry fruit. Velvety, but showing persistent grip through the finish.—J.M.
