RATINGS

96Robert M. Parker Jr.

...gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, subtle barbecue smoke and charcoal followed by full body, beautiful intensity, great purity, stature and length.

94James Suckling

What a wonderful nose of ripe strawberries and hints of vanilla. Full body with soft and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is luscious and sexy.

91Wine Spectator

Dark and nicely toasty, with ample espresso and ganache up front, followed by steeped fig, blackberry and black currant fruit that rumbles through the finish...Features ample tarry grip...

91Stephen Tanzer

Superripe but fresh aromas of cassis, plum and chocolate. Broad, sweet, rich and generous, offering considerable early appeal to its dark berry and chocolate flavors. Pliant and utterly seductive today, finishing with lush, sweet tannins

17.5Jancis Robinson

...Extremely caressing in terms of texture. Wine as massage. But with lots of tannins hidden in there underneath. So much pleasure in store...

PRODUCER

Château Lascombes

Château Lascombes is a Second Growth Margaux, according to the official 1855 classification. The 200-acre estate in Bordeaux was founded in the 17th century by Chevalier de Lascombes, and it stayed in the Lascombes family for several generations. In the 20th century the estate was purchased in 1952 by the legendary wine writer Alexis Lichine. Today it is owned by the U.S.-based consortium Colony Capital. The new owners have invested significantly in the estate to modernize its cellars and winemaking equipment. The blend is typically 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot.

There are twenty-one crus classé, including the most famous estate, the first growth Château Margaux.
