Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Lascombes leaps from the glass with black raspberries, mulberries and blackcurrant pastilles with hints of earth, herbs, meats and cedar. Medium-bodied, it has plenty of juicy fruit and is fresh and plush, finishing long with a mineral lift.

A ripe juicy wine, this is restrained for this estate. The tannins and ripe black fruits are balanced by the acidity and elegant backdrop. It will age well, likely to be ready from 2024.

This features lots of perfume, with lilac, sandalwood, savory and bergamot notes working together, backed by a silky core of cassis and black cherry fruit. The elegant finish shows sneaky length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2032. 15,833 cases made.

Tight and firm with dark-berry and chocolate character. Some mahogany, too. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. But should fill out with elevage. Shows potential.

Deep crimson. Fragrant with cassis fruit and leaf and an inviting note of graphite. Firm, dry, well-structured but with the fruit to hold the centre. Persistent but slightly dry on the finish.

Conforme au style du cru, le 2017 affiche une maturité aboutie du fruit et un côté plein en bouche. Un vin opulent, mais sans lourdeur.

The 2017 Lascombes is a very promising wine. Unctuous, super-ripe and flamboyant, the 2017 packs a serious punch. Crème de cassis, blackberry jam, spice, new leather and sweet French oak add to the wine's racy personality. Although Lascombes is not an especially typical Margaux, it is super-expressive today. That said, it is my belief that wines made with this sort of intense, concentrated approach need to be bottled early because there is a significant risk of the fruit drying out during élevage.

A bit of a drag queen with its fruity character and outgoing nature, the wine is round and flashy. The fruit is ripe and sweet, damp with warm earth, tobacco and licorice. Made from blending 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, this is the first vintage in recent times made from a Cabernet dominated blend. The wine is aging in 50% new, French oak barrels, which is a choice I hope they stick with, as the wines in the past often suffered from too much oak.

Loads of plums, spice, exotic flowers, and damp earth jump from the glass of the 2017 Château Lascombes. Possessing sweet tannin, surprisingly ripe, concentrated fruit, a seductive texture, and medium to full body, it’s a classic Margaux from this vintage that can be drunk young or cellared for 15-20 years.

Description

The vineyard of Château Lascombes covers 112 hectars and is located in the Margaux appellation. It is currently one of the largest vineyards of the Crus Classés from 1855. Its Château has an elegant silhouette with varied styles which combines elements of the 17th and the 19th century.


A long story

From the 17th century to the present day, ten generations of owners have succeeded one another; each generation has shaped the history of the Château Lascombes. The oldest known owner was the Chevalier de Lascombes, who bequeathed his name to the estate and the latest owner was, Alexis Lichine, a trader and excellent wine taster who is respected by his peers at the MASCSF. They bought the wine estate in 2011 from Colony Capital and became the owners. Their will was to raise the quality of the wines to an even higher standard and to thus perpetuate the work started by the first owners.


A style

Through their requirements and all the daily care that contributed to its excellence, Château Lascombes has reached the highest sales in Margaux. The wine is both firm and unctuous; it is a wine of great temperament and great care, which was born to cross the decades. The beautiful proportion of Merlot in its blend also makes it easier to drink when its still young. This wine is an alliance of power and elegance, creaminess and tannic richness: the Château Lascombes is a complex wine. Young, its deep color is always impressive. The palate combines finesse and mellowness with a very noble tannin grain. Over the years, you need to rediscover Château Lascombes to fully appreciate its aromatic complexity and to see its structure evolve to become more and more suave.
