One of the more modern-styled wines from the appellation of Margaux always with a prominent overlay of toasty new oak espresso roast and sweet black fruits this wine seems more restrained and has backed off its concentration with the 2006. It is a mid-weight elegant wine with notes of licorice and black currants as well as a hint of tobacco leaf. The wine is concentrated and obviously outstanding but the moderate tannins in the finish suggest cellaring it for 2-3 years and drinking it over the following 15-20.

Full and silky with a lovely texture of ripe tannins and an aftertaste of dark chocolate berry and light vanilla. This is a solid estate making solid wines now.

Lush and rather exotic in the mouth with the liqueur-like quality carrying through. Not at all overly sweet but a distinctly supple and fine-grained style of 2006. Finishes with very ripe tannins and lovely persistence. Accessible already but with the stuffing to age.

Floral aromas up front are supported by a fantastic depth of cool clay and limestone. Dark cassis and raspberry aromas are followed by light sage and fresh mint. On the palate the wine presents lush fruit up front and allows the tannins to build to a balanced bold intensity. Flinty dark fruits and dusty cedar notes linger through the finish. This is a big wine. Since 2003 Lascombes has continued to offer one of the best values out of Margaux.
