Full-bodied, but not too much. Flavorful finish. A blend of 57% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot and 3% petit verdot. Drink in 2022. collapse

Beautifully concentrated, medium to full-bodied, and opulent even on the palate (which isn’t the case for many wines), it's beautifully balanced, has ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. This is a hedonistic yet beautifully balanced, stunning 2017 that will drink nicely for 20 years or more. collapse

Medium-bodied, it has plenty of juicy fruit and is fresh and plush, finishing long with a mineral lift.- LPB collapse

A ripe juicy wine, this is restrained for this estate. The tannins and ripe black fruits are balanced by the acidity and elegant backdrop. It will age well, likely to be ready from 2024. - ROGER VOSS

A wine with no hard edges and tons of immediacy, Lascombes will be hard to resist pretty much upon release. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, menthol, licorice and lavender infuse the 2017 with striking depth as well as character. Readers should expect a racy, unapologetically flamboyant style. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

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. collapse

This features lots of perfume, with lilac, sandalwood, savory and bergamot notes working together, backed by a silky core of cassis and black cherry fruit. The elegant finish shows sneaky length.
