Another incredibly successful sleeper of the vintage the 2008 Lascombes confirms just how many top 2008s were produced. A dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a sexy up-front perfume of forest floor damp earth blue and red fruits and a touch of spicy oak. Lush with low acidity and sweet tannin it appears to be a bigger version of the stunning 2008 Malescot St.-Exupery. Drink it over the next 15 or more years - it is well-worth buying by the case. Drink: 2011 - 2026

Dark red. Very ripe aromas of plum mocha coffee earth and fresh herbs. Lush smooth and sweet with palate-coating flavors of currant earth and smoky oak. Suave accessible Margaux finishing with a fine dusting of tannins... Dark red. Very ripe aromas of plum mocha coffee earth and fresh herbs. Lush smooth and sweet with palate-coating flavors of currant earth and smoky oak. Suave accessible Margaux finishing with a fine dusting of tannins and spreading out impressively on the back end. Very good subtle length here.
