Tasting Notes Lascombes 2007
A brilliant effort for the vintage, the 2007 Lascombes is an impressive, larger-scaled wine with beautiful notes of incense, spring flowers, blackberries, cassis, and subtle spicy oak. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, with no hard edges, this voluptuously textured Margaux can be drunk now or cellared for 15 years.
Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. Although I often find Lascombes over-ripe, I cannot deny that this 2007 is one of the better examples from Margaux. It has a ripe blackberry, cedar and tar scented nose with a touch of scorched earth. The palate is medium-bodied with sharp acidity on the entry, grainy in texture, good backbone but quite dry towards the finish. Fine. Tasted January 2011.
