Dense and extracted through the polished finish, this features a charcoal spine that gives rise to extra blueberry and pastis notes. Should cruise in the cellar. Best from 2018 through 2038. 13,750 cases made. — JM

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.

You can drink this now although, there is concentration here, and the tannins build up through the palate, suggesting it is not quite at the right moment to show all of its potential. Black pepper, cassis, menthol in abundance. Not as generous at all as you find in 2009, 2010 or even 2012, it's a different profile, but one that has a singular appeal. 80% new oak. A yield of 30hl/ha.

A brightness and beauty to this wine, with mineral, berry and dark-chocolate character. Full body but reserved and integrated. Very fine for the vintage. Better than from barrel. Try in 2018.

At this stage, the wine is showing way too much wood aging. It is toasty and spicy with the fruit obscured beneath. It should integrate in a few years, although the wood is always likely to be prominent. Drink from 2017...   At this stage, the wine is showing way too much wood aging.
