Winemaker Notes

Combining power and elegance and an unctuous and tannin-rich texture, Chateau Lascombes is a complex wine. In its youth, it always has an amazingly deep color. On the palate, finesse and a rich texture combine with very stylish fine-grained tannins.

Blend: 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
The Wine Advocate

The wine hits all cylinders in 2010. The average alcohol for the bottled wine is 14%. It has a gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, subtle barbecue smoke and charcoal followed by full body, beautiful intensity, great purity, stature and length. The influence of any oak is minimal, despite the fact that 90% new French oak was used. Needless to say, this is an example of modern-styled winemaking at it’s finest, and arguments that such wines will not age well, do not represent their terroir , and are soul-less, are totally groundless. Give it 5 or so years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. This is one of the great Margaux wines of the vintage.

James Suckling

What a wonderful nose of ripe strawberries and hints of vanilla. Full body with soft and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is luscious and sexy.

Wine Enthusiast

Wood-driven tannins dominate at this stage, creating a wine that is structured and dense. The tannins are layered with the weight of the black currant and plum fruits. Lascombes is still finding its style, but is definitely on the upward slope.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Dark and nicely toasty, with ample espresso and ganache up front, followed by steeped fig, blackberry and black currant fruit that rumbles through the finish. Features ample tarry grip, but eschews minerality and finesse for a direct and toast-driven approach. Best from 2014 through 2026.

Range: 88-91

(50% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot and 5% petit verdot) Very deep, almost inky ruby. Perfumed aromas of red cherry, dark plum, flowers and cedar, plus a whiff of menthol. Juicy, sweet and nicely deep, with red cherry, blackberry and underbrush flavors carrying through to the long finish. The wine's tannins are firm but polished, and its bright, harmonious acids leave an impression of freshness and refinement that I don't always associate with Lascombes.

Chateau Lascombes
Château Lascombes, a Margaux ranked Second Growth in the 1855 classification, bears the name of its first owner, Chevalier de Lascombes, born in 1625. At the turn of the 18th century, Jean-Francois Lascombes, a councillor at the Bordeaux Parliament, dedicated his wealth to making a great wine at Lascombes. The existing chateau was built in 1867 by Chaix D'Est Ange.

Alexis Lichine took over the property in 1952. He completely restructured Chateau Lascombes... View More
