Tasting Notes Lascombes 2009

94

The 2009, which is inky blue/purple to the rim, is a final blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot at 14% natural alcohol. The wine has a beautiful blueberry-scented nose with hints of acacia flowers, licorice, graphite and some subtle charcoal and background oak. Clearly a modern style of Margaux, it is pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent, and the high glycerin and silky texture of 2009 are brilliantly displayed in this wine. Drink it over the next 15+ years, although it is certainly capable of lasting well past two decades. One of the more difficult estates to manage in southern Margaux is the 300 acres of Lascombes, subdivided into at least 40 to 50 separate plots, making harvest decisions, ripening, and related issues a strategic nightmare. Nevertheless, they seem to have hit pay dirt frequently over the last decade plus.

Aromas of black tea, blackberries, blueberries and coffee bean, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Lovely mouth feel. Very well done. Try in 2019.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Lascombes '09 appears to be meliorating in bottle even though it is comparatively reticent on the nose: blackberry, briary with attractive granitic aromas emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. There is a slight grittiness to this Margaux, but there is impressive structure on the saline finish and a crunchy, bitter note on the aftertaste. Tasted January 2013.
