50% merlot 44% cabernet sauvignon 5% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc. Aged 18 months in 50% new oak. Chateau Lascombes now utilizes an optical sorting table which eliminates any berry that is not entirely up to par. The seductive and complex nose offers a beautiful mix of violet chocolate allspice cinnamon and beautifully ripe blackberry. Delicious blackberry and boysenberry emerge on the round palate with a touch of vanilla. This silky smooth wine will benefit from at least 5 years of

55% merlot 40% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot. Beautifully perfumed aromas of blackberry huckleberry and plum mix with hints of forest floor black truffle and a touch of espresso.Exceptionally soft and approachable the lush palate shows broad integrated tannins that lend structure to the purple fruit. Showing less acidity than many of its vintage peers this is almost hedonistic in its youthful approachability. Give it a couple of years to settle down and then enjoy over the next 2

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

2010: While this large property is composed of a huge number of small parcels that must require military-like precision to harvest, the quality of the wines over the last decade has been remarkable.

Chateau Lascombes is ranked in the Deuxieme Cru (Second Growth) of the Medoc 1855 Classification and is a perpetual top performer among the world's greatest Bordeaux. Robert Parker scored this wine from the outstanding 2010 vintage 96 points saying "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 its finest, and arguments that such wines will not age well, do not represent their terroir , and are soul-less, are totally groundless. Give it five 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." and the Gilbert & Galliard French Wine Guide scored this 98 points saying "Dark-hued. Very delicate nose revealing a marvellous fusion of black fruit and oak. Sterling quality texture, delicate aromas and above-average length. A great bottling that still has lots to offer."
