(WA 92-95 points) The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lascombes gives up lovely scents of roses and lavender over a core of kirsch, crushed black plums and black raspberries with a waft of cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with a rock-solid frame of firm, ripe, grainy tannins, it has a great core of muscular fruit and lingering spicy notes on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Unctuous, super-ripe and flamboyant, the 2017 packs a serious punch. Crème de cassis, blackberry jam, spice, new leather and sweet French oak add to the wine's racy personality. Although Lascombes is not an especially typical Margaux, it is super-expressive today. That said, it is my belief that wines made with this sort of intense, concentrated approach need to be bottled early because there is a significant risk of the fruit drying out during élevage.

The fruit is ripe and sweet, damp with warm earth, tobacco and licorice. Made from blending 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, this is the first vintage in recent times made from a Cabernet dominated blend. The wine is aging in 50% new, French oak barrels, which is a choice I hope they stick with, as the wines in the past often suffered from too much oak.

(90-92) Loads of plums, spice, exotic flowers, and damp earth jump from the glass of the 2017 Château Lascombes. Possessing sweet tannin, surprisingly ripe, concentrated fruit, a seductive texture, and medium to full body, it’s a classic Margaux from this vintage that can be drunk young or cellared for 15-20 years.

It has plenty of fresh fruit and acidity that lead into a bright finish. It is not a powerful wine, but it will be easy to drink from 2023.

(90-91) Tight and firm with dark-berry and chocolate character. Some mahogany, too. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. But should fill out with elevage. Shows potential.

Wine Spectator, April 2018
(88-91) A soft and alluring style, with warm boysenberry and blackberry puree flavors allied to a velvety structure. Light spice shadings emerge on the open-knit finish. -JM
