The estate bears the name of Antoine, chevalier de Lascombes whom the estate belonged to in the 17th century. It would remain in the family for three generations until the French Revolution. It has since passed through the hands of several owners, and since 2001 this is the MACSF group who bought it for 200 million Euros.
Dark purple. A little bit of wood shavings on the nose of this, as in the second wine. Very sweet palate entry without quite the energy of some of the most successful Margaux but it is certainly dramatic. Some will love its full-on impact. Tastes a bit alcoholic.
50% Cabernet Sauvignon 47% Merlot 3% Petit Verdot. Very deep plum, touch of soy, cassis, nice sweet palate, calm silky, this is well built too last, fine finish, excellent job.
The 2015 Lascombes has a dense, rich bouquet with licorice and cigar box-infused black fruit and a touch of wilted violet. It feels rather tight-fisted compared to its peers in the Margaux appéllation. The palate is very smooth on the entry, plenty of new oak here, balanced but for want of a better word, missing some personality - especially on the finish that feels just a little labored.
