Tasting Notes Lascombes 2000
The first of a succession of brilliant wines that have emerged from this previously moribund estate over the last decade, the fully mature 2000 Lascombes is an outstanding effort. Notes of cedarwood, roasted herbs, incense, black cherries, and currants emerge from this medium-bodied, evolved Margaux. Consume it over the next 7-8 years.
At the MW horizontal in November 2004. Very little on the nose. Muted. A touch of black cherry and cassis. The palate is very fresh with notes of liquorice and blackcurrant. It just lacks the poise of the better Margaux wines and the persistency on the finish. May improve. Drink from 2010.
