Color, this wine has a ruby red color. Nose, this is indeed a modern old world wine! After many hours of decanting, this wine smells like a fruit bomb to a cretin extent. There are a lot of of black fruits coming through, blueberries are dominating, some cassis, floral aromas, some heat coming through, some earthiness and dirt. Midpalate, charcoaly flavors are vibrant here, some minimality coming through, really a modern Bordeaux, blueberries still going on. Finish, it proves that this wine is a new world! I am not getting any acidity. There are firm layered tannins going on, nice texture, nice complexity, blueberries are still dancing on my palate. I am still feeling this wine after 30 seconds of sipping it. This is a well made and balanced bottle of wine. I am 93 on this effort. Bottled at 13.5%. Happy drinking!
A very lovely smooth Bordeaux. Easy to drink. Wonderful on its own or along with food. I really enjoyed it!
For the money this is an incredible expression of Bordeaux. Hints of earth and spice on a solid foundation. Well balanced tannins give this beauty a nice textured mouth feel without being overly aggressive. Subtle fruit is complimented with herbal accents and wet leather.

Robert Parker bestowed a 95 point rating on it and said "A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-35 years."

Lascombes' ownership has returned this estate to its rightful place as one of the top wines of Margaux. The stunning 2005 boasts aromas of lead pencil shavings,incense, charcoal, spring flowers, blackberries, cherries, and espresso roast. A pure, fresh, full-bodied palate reveals moderate sweet tannin, a sensational, lush texture, and a blockbuster finish, but they do not compromise the floral elegance of the Margaux appellation.
Dark in color with an impressive nose of licorice toasty oak chocolate and blackberry. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long caressing finish. Very pretty and structured. Best after 2012. 25 000 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.
