An intriguing blend of 48% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, this inky purple-colored wine is ripe, progressively styled, big, rich, thick and juicy. In other words, the 2012 Lascombes is loaded. No doubt the high percentage of Merlot in the final blend gives this wine a fleshiness and succulence that is unusual in the Médoc. Rich, pure and full, it should hit its prime in another 4-5 years and last at least two or three decades. - Robert Parker

(WE91-93 points) This is a full-bodied wine that shows signs of bitter extraction. It has weight, certainly, along with signs of dark-plum fruits to go with the firm tannins. A complex aftertaste promises well.

Intense aromas of black cherries, violets, earth and chocolate. Full body, velvety tannins, lovely acidity and long, spicy finish. Grows on you. Drink in 2017.

Smelling unmistakably of ripe cherries with an attractive veneer of root-beer-like sweetness for which its creamy oak claims the lion’s share of credit, Lascombes makes a very good showing here, first for its deep, slightly juicy young fruit and then for its fine balance. It is at once fleshy and still fairly tight with a long- lasting finish wherein tannin, acidity and fruit are carefully and inseparably joined, and, while it has the richness to tempt early drinking, it has the structure and stamina to improve for another eight to ten years.
