Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, July 2012
Big bold and fruity this shows plenty of rich blackberry-juice flavor and fine tannins. The fruit and tannins are well balanced with a juicy character on the finish. - R.V.

This large, fragmented estate must be a logistical nightmare for winemakers, but the 2011, a blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, exhibits a beautifully scented nose of spring flowers, black raspberries, black currants, graphite and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and rich with supple tannins, this terrific example of Lascombes continues their qualitative revolution that began over 15 years ago. One of the stars of the vintage, this beauty can be consumed over the next 20-25 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Nice lilac sandalwood and mulled cherry notes with perfumy spice chiming in on the lightly fusty finish. Pretty.-J.M.

Planted on mixed clay-limestone and gravel soils the vines average 35 years old at a density of 8000-10000 vines per hectare. Harvest is done by hand. Deep dense crimson throughout. Intense and modern nose of ripe red raspberry blackberry and cherry cola followed by sweet mocha chocolate incense and tar. Already showing a little of the new oak in which it was aged. The palate is big and intense with tannins that continue to build towards a dry and angular finish. This also deserves a few years in bottle to give all components time to come into further balance. Enjoy 2015-2025. Tasted twice.
