Tasting Notes Lascombes 2016
Full, focused and precise with dark berries, intensely fine tannins and a fresh finish. Medium to full body and a persistent finish. More refined than in the past, yet it remains very well structured.
Solidly built, with a note of baker’s chocolate adding heft to the mix of plum and blackberry fruit. Velvety, but showing persistent grip through the finish.—J.M.
Dark blackish purple. I'd hate to be given this blind. It's pure Napa Valley! So sweet! So concentrated! Not really Margaux but a mouthful of concentration, certainly. Drying finish with a slight suggestion of something underripe on the very end. Extremely different from most of its neighbours but the style will definitely appeal to some palates. Just goes a bit dead on the end.
