Tasting Notes

    Robert Parker, June 2010,
    Score: 90

    The first of a succession of brilliant wines that have emerged from this previously moribund estate over the last decade, the fully mature 2000 Lascombes is an outstanding effort. Notes of cedarwood, roasted herbs, incense, black cherries, and currants emerge from this medium-bodied, evolved Margaux. Consume it over the next 7-8 years.

    Robert Parker, April 2003,
    Score: 90

    The first superb Lascombes in nearly 35 years, this generous, deep ruby/purple-colored 2000 does not possess the complexity or finesse of the 2001, but offers plenty of perfumed, smoky licorice, black currant, and cherry fruit in a medium-bodied, long, concentrated style with no hard edges. While it possesses a more muscular, tannic character than the 2001, it is clearly the finest wine made at this estate since their classic 1966 and 1970. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016.

    Score: 17.0

    Medium-full colour. Fullish, rich, quite sturdy nose. Yet good smooth style on aeration. Fullish body. Very well balanced. Rich, concentrated and sophisticated. Lots of depth. Very good indeed.Drink 2012-2030

Producer

Château Lascombes

Château Lascombes, bears the name of its first owner, Chevalier de Lascombes, who was born in 1625. Bought by Alexis Lichine in 1952, he rennovated the château's vineyard and cellars. In 1971 he sold the estate to the British brewer Bass-Charrington. The estate then passed on to Colony Capital in 2001. With this new ownership, the slightly unloved estate has again blossomed, due to strict selection methods and more labour intensive vinification. Yves Vatelot (of Reignac) and Alain Raynaud (of Quinault) have been consulting, and the jump in quality is impressive. The vineyards are planted with vines of an average age of 40 years with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. For ageing, 80-100% new oak barriques are used, depending on the character of the vintage.

Region

Margaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
