Tasting Notes Lascombes 2005

95

A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-35 years.

Tasted single blind at Southwold. Another Margaux that has ameliorated since bottling. It is a little dusty on the nose: macerated black cherries, a touch of violets but it never really gets going. The palate has ripe sappy tannins, good acidity, rather assertive with a deep, muscular finish of blackberry, sous-bois and cedar. It still lacks the finesse of other Margaux, but it is certainly beginning to meld together. Modern Margaux, polished and well-crafted. Drink 2014-2030. Tasted January 2009.
