Something about Chateau Lascombes
The central figure in the history of Chateau Lascombes is the Knight Antoine de Lascombes, who gave the estate his name and is its earliest known owner. The vineyards of Chateau Lascombes were planted by Antoine and over the centuries were expanded from an initial 27 hectares to its current size of 118 hectares. Its vineyards are planted with the classic Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot, which thrive in the poor gravel soil of Margaux. Chateau Lascombes employs the services of Michel Rolland as a consulting oenologist.

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.
The 2008 Lascombes felt smudged and lacked complexity on the nose compared to its peers, open-knit, enjoyable but it is missing a sense of terroir. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry with fine tannin and well judged acidity, notes of black plum and a smear of cassis. This Lascombes is ready to be broached now but it is just missing personality and sense of being
Dark crimson. Medium intensity and some mossiness on the nose. Sweet, seductive start - a Pomerol from Margaux. Very rich and soft and velvety with the fine tannins coming in towards the end. Not very Margaux but certainly very opulent. Be aware of the style! Finish dries the palate a bit at the moment.
