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.

Made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Lascombes is deep garnet-purple colored. It explodes with expressive notes of creme de cassis, plum preserves, and wild blueberries, plus suggestions of dark chocolate, star anise, and tilled soil. Full-bodied, rich, and seductive, it has firm, ripe, plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and impactful.
This is extremely linear and refined with a super-fine line of tannins running through the center of the wine. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and sophisticated, with a long, long finish. Plenty of blackcurrant, dark chocolate, walnut and cedar in the aftertaste. Try after 2025.
Offering up a rich bouquet of blackberries, cassis, burning embers and sweet spices, the 2019 Lascombes is full-bodied, lavish and textural, with a voluminous core of fruit, lively acids and plenty of ripe, powdery tannin that asserts itself on the youthfully firm finish. This is a powerful, muscular style of Margaux that remains nicely balanced in its register. - drink 2027-2050
Enjoyable in the depth of its autumnal fruits on the attack, but a little tight. More serious than the 2018 Lascombes, as is so often the case with the 2019 vintage, give it a good five or six years before opening. Black cherry and vanilla pod sweetness lies beneath the tannic frame. 48hl/ha yields, 60% new oak. Harvest September 19 to October 16.
