The 2009 which is inky blue/purple to the rim is a final blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon 48% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot at 14% natural alcohol. The wine has a beautiful blueberry-scented nose with hints of acacia flowers licorice graphite and some subtle charcoal and background oak. Clearly a modern style of Margaux it is pure seamless full-bodied and opulent and the high glycerin and silky texture of 2009 are brilliantly displayed in this wine. Drink it over the next 15+ years although it is certainly capable of lasting well past two decades.

Aromas of black tea blackberries blueberries and coffee bean follow through to a full body with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Lovely mouth feel. Very well done. Try in 2019.

Supple sweet and chocolately. Nicely concentrated broad and round showing a lush texture and a good chewy texture. Finishes with sweet tannins and a lingering element of smoky oak. Lovely claret.

A wood- and fruit-driven wine very modern in style. It has the ripest fruit along with dense tannins and concentration. The style is more international than Margaux but the wine is certainly delicious.

50% merlot 47% cabernet sauvignon 2% petit verdot 1% cabernet franc in the vineyard. Deep purple color with a bright pink rim. Aromas of licorice all spice graphite and leather surround a core of dark ripe berry fruits... 50% merlot 47% cabernet sauvignon 2% petit verdot 1% cabernet franc in the vineyard. Deep purple color with a bright pink rim. Aromas of licorice all spice graphite and leather surround a core of dark ripe berry fruits. This is a big wine with a ton of personality but also has a feminine quality about it which keeps it from being over the top. This is definitely 'Margaux' and for a vintage where power can prevail over elegance I think the Lascombes is really well balanced. Shows the Lascombes style and is markedly different than its neighbors. Well done.
