Tasting Notes Lascombes 2008

93

Another incredibly successful sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Lascombes confirms just how many top 2008s were produced. A dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a sexy, up-front perfume of forest floor, damp earth, blue and red fruits and a touch of spicy oak. Lush with low acidity and sweet tannin, it appears to be a bigger version of the stunning 2008 Malescot St.-Exupery. Drink it over the next 15 or more years – it is well-worth buying by the case.

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. This is a better bottle of Lascombes compared to previous encounters. It has quite a fleshy bouquet, quite delicate and defined with redcurrant and wild strawberry, a little kirsch in the background. The palate is tannic and a little saline on the entry with gritty tannins and a masculine, chalky finish. Nice purity but a little abrupt. Tasted January 2012.
