Scores and tasting notes


Red ruby core. Looks rather dilute and aged. Spicy, herbaceous palate, but reasonably well-balanced though forward. Simple with no frills. Tasted April 1999.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate - Wine Journal


The 1997 Lascombes is made in an up-front, light to medium-bodied, soft style, but at present the oak seems excessive for the moderate quantities of fruit. It will need to be drunk during its first 7-8 years of life. (No tasting note was provided in Issue 128. We have instead included the text of the tasting note from Issue 122)
