A tight, full-bodied Lascombes that shows nice extraction and concentration. A haze of oak spices and espresso on top of the black currants, blackberries, dark olives, graphite and black bean puree. Pretty broad, vertical...

Dark chocolate covered black cherries on the nose, so appealing. This is scrumptious; the combination of cool, crunchy fruit with ripe, plush tannins and generous acidity. I love the lifted nature, the sweet fruit aspects...

The 2021 Lascombes was bottled in June 2023. It has an attractive nose, not amazingly complex but demonstrating purity of fruit: black cherries, a touch of cassis and that inkwell trait I commented upon from barrel. The...

The 2021 Lascombes Bordeaux Blend, produced by Lascombes in the Margaux sub-region of Bordeaux, France, has garnered a range of positive reviews from various professional wine critics. This red wine is bottled with a cork closure and displays a deep ruby/plum color.

Jane Anson from janeanson.com rated this wine 92 points, noting its "sandalwood and campfire smoke" aromas, along with "bright acidity, blueberry, and raspberry fruit." She highlighted its "soft rose aromatics" typical of the Margaux appellation and mentioned that it "dips through the mid-palate but a clear step up from the Chevalier." Anson also noted that this vintage marks the last full year with Dominique Befve as director, with a yield of 41hl/h and aged in 60% new oak.

Jeff Leve from TheWineCellarInsider.com also awarded the wine 92 points, describing a bouquet of "chocolate, espresso, licorice, black cherries, and mint chip ice cream." He found the palate to be "creamy, supple, rich, ripe, and fruity," with dark chocolate and espresso notes that linger. Leve suggests that the wine will be best enjoyed from 2025 to 2040.

Jeb Dunnuck from jebdunnuck.com gave the wine a slightly higher score of 93 points, praising its "beautiful aromatics of red and black currants, smoked tobacco, graphite, and integrated oak." He remarked on its "focused, elegant mouthfeel," as well as its "rock-solid mid-palate depth" and "ripe tannins." Dunnuck mentioned that the blend consists of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot, aged for 18 months in French oak.

James Suckling, represented by Zekun Shuai, rated the 2021 Lascombes at 94 points, describing it as "tight, full-bodied" with "nice extraction and concentration." He noted a "haze of oak spices and espresso" alongside flavors of "black currants, blackberries, dark olives, graphite, and black bean puree." Suckling believes this wine will improve with a few years of aging, recommending it be enjoyed from 2026 onwards.

Vinous’ Neal Martin rated the wine 90 points, commenting on its "attractive nose" with "purity of fruit: black cherries, a touch of cassis, and inkwell traits." He found the palate to be "medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins," though he noted a "slight tapering-off toward the finish." Martin appreciated the wine's "linearity" and predicted it should drink well for 15-20 years.

Decanter awarded the wine 91 points for its "dark chocolate covered black cherries on the nose" and praised its combination of "cool, crunchy fruit with ripe, plush tannins and generous acidity." The review highlighted the wine's "lifted nature" and "chalky, wet stone element to the tannins."

Overall, the 2021 Lascombes Bordeaux Blend is well-regarded for its aromatic complexity, balanced palate, and potential for aging, with reviewers consistently awarding it scores in the low to mid-90s.
