The 2010 may turn out to be the greatest Lascombes ever made. It boasts a dense purple color along with an extraordinarily uplifted set of aromatics consisting of blueberry liqueur black cherries subtle smoke crushed rocks and restrained oak. Massive fruit an unctuous texture a skyscraper-like mid-palate and stunning definition (because of good acids and a modest pH) have resulted in a formidable wine that will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 years. A brilliant effort!

Impressive start with lots of polished and silky tannins here and an enticing depth of fruit and a caressing finish. Slightly one-dimensional

Slightly jammy with a ripe forward profile of plum prune blackberry and black cherry backed by an ample dose of dark licorice on the slightly raisiny finish. -J.M.

50% merlot 44% cabernet sauvignon 5% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc. Aged 18 months in 50% new oak.

Aged 18 months in 50% new oak. Chateau Lascombes now utilizes an optical sorting table which eliminates any berry that is not entirely up to par. The seductive and complex nose offers a beautiful mix of violet chocolate allspice cinnamon and beautifully ripe blackberry. Delicious blackberry and boysenberry emerge on the round palate with a touch of vanilla. This silky smooth wine will benefit from at least 5 years of aging and will age well for over 2 decades. Beautiful wine! Tasted three times (once at the Chateau).
