Château Lascombes Margaux Grand Cru Classé
Aromas of black tea, blackberries, blueberries and coffee bean, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Lovely mouth feel.
Robert Parker(2008 Vintage) "Another incredibly successful sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Lascombes confirms just how many top 2008s were produced. A dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a sexy, up-front perfume of forest floor, damp earth, blue and red fruits and a touch of spicy oak. Lush with low acidity and sweet tannin, it appears to be a bigger version of the stunning 2008 Malescot St.-Exupery. Drink it over the next 15 or more years – it is well-worth buying by the case."

Decanter(2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Deep, vibrant colour, concentrated intense nose and densely fruity, very concentrated but not lacking in elegance, good extraction and very good potential, a typically meaty Lascombes, but with more purity of fruit than in recent years. Ready 2006-2020. (
