Chocolatey torrefaction and herbs currently dominate black fruit aromas on the nose. Much more fruit-dominated in the mouth: pure rich almost decadently ripe blackberry and cassis flavors are plush and creamy but possess excellent grip and precision. Very polished tannins give the luscious finish an ultrasmooth texture. Maybe a bit more New than Old World but this version of Lascombes is much more reminiscent of classic Bordeaux than other recent vintages and appears to be the best vintage here in years.

This has the perfumy lilac and black tea aromas of the vintage with supple mulled plum fruit and a streak of iron hanging on the finish. Drink now through 2018. -JM
