2010 LASCOMBES / 力士金

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.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

The wine hits all cylinders in 2010. The average alcohol for the bottled wine is 14%. It has a 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. The influence of any oak is minimal, despite the fact that 90% new French oak was used. Needless to say, this is an example of modern-styled winemaking at it's finest, and arguments that such wines will not age well, do not represent their terroir , and are soul-less, are totally groundless. Give it 5 or so years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. This is one of the great Margaux wines of the vintage. Probably the greatest Lascombes made to date, the 2010 is a blend of 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. The production from this huge estate totals nearly 400,000 bottles.

Tasted twice, the Lascombes is a blend of 45% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The first sample has a very ripe bouquet with crème de cassis and plum-scented fruit, flirting with over-ripeness. The palate is medium-bodied with rather low acidity and a very smudged and a little hard on the finish. A second sample is consistent and I will endeavour to taste this at a later juncture. Tasted April 2011.

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. Try in 2017.

Another extremely dark blackish crimson Margaux. Lifted nose and very sweet and sumptuous. Extremely caressing in terms of texture. Wine as massage. But with lots of tannins hidden in there underneath. So much pleasure in store... Though pretty alcoholic!
