Château Lascombes Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a slightly paler colour, but it still has an attractive appearance. Quite a bit of funk on the nose, although this seems to blow off with aeration. More sooty notes here as well, and I wonder if this is going to be a very tannic evening. There is more development with this wine, however, as fragrant aromas and notes of cigar box show themselves. On the palate, elegant and fragrant blackcurrant fruit. A full and richly flavoured midpalate, again fairly tannic but less so than the previous wine. A full bodied and smoothly textured mouthful, leading to more cigar box on the finish.

Château Lascombes:
Chateau Lascombes. a Margaux ranked second growth in the 1855 classification, bears the name of its first owner, Chevalier de Lascombes. born in 1625.
