Complex nose, blending notes of elderberries, black cherries, spices, cedar,and violets. It’s full-bodied and structured with elegant tannins and a fleshy texture. Flavorful, savory finish. Try after 2024.

(94+ points) The 2018 Château Lascombes performed brilliantly in my tastings. It's a rich, medium to full-bodied, impressively textured Margaux with loads to love. Lots of jammy currants, blueberries, vanilla bean...

Wine Enthusiast, May 2021

This large estate to the north of Margaux village is performing well. There is still a tendency to overuse wood aging, but powerful black fruits will provide balance as the wine ages. With its structure and dark tannins...

Wine Spectator, January 2021

A bright juniper note leads off, followed quickly by a mix of warmed cassis, steeped plum and blackberry compote flavors. Silky and fine-grained in feel from start to finish, with a late flurry of singed wood, savory and...

An exuberant vintage all around, and this is in the zeitgeist of the year, if not the appellation. Trace of heat, and the extraction is pretty charged, which makes things abrupt on the finish but the tannins are chewy and...

Allow me to introduce you to the exquisite 2018 Lascombes, a Bordeaux Blend that hails from the prestigious Margaux region in France. This wine is a true testament to the artistry and craftsmanship of the renowned producer, Lascombes. With its deep garnet-purple color, the 2018 Lascombes immediately catches the eye and sets the stage for an exceptional tasting experience.

On the nose, this wine reveals a complexity that is truly captivating. The aromas blend harmoniously, showcasing notes of elderberries, black cherries, spices, cedar, and violets. Each element adds its own layer of intrigue, creating a bouquet that is both alluring and sophisticated.

The palate of the 2018 Lascombes is equally impressive. Full-bodied and structured, it boasts elegant tannins and a fleshy texture that contribute to its overall refinement. The flavors are rich and multifaceted, offering a delightful interplay between savory and fruity notes. A flavorful and lingering finish leaves a lasting impression, urging you to take another sip.

Renowned wine critic James Suckling awarded this wine an impressive score of 95 points, praising its complexity and elegant structure. Wine Enthusiast also recognized its potential, awarding it 94 points and noting its powerful black fruits that will provide balance as the wine ages. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it 93+ points, highlighting its muscular black fruits and firm, grainy tannins. Other esteemed critics, such as Jeff Leve and Decanter, also praised its qualities, further cementing its status as a remarkable wine.

Made from a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Lascombes was carefully crafted and aged in 60% new French oak. This attention to detail and commitment to quality shine through in every sip.

For those who appreciate the finesse and elegance of Bordeaux wines, the 2018 Lascombes is a must-try. While it is already showing great potential, it is recommended to give it a few more years of aging to fully express its complexity. However, if you simply can't wait, be sure to decant it for an hour or two to allow its flavors to fully develop.

Indulge in the splendor of the 2018 Lascombes and experience the magic of Margaux in every sip. Cheers!
