Chateau Lascombes is a top fine wine producer located in the Margaux appellation of Bordeaux, France. As designated by the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, Chateau Lascombes holds the rank of Second Growth.
In addition to its primary wine, Chateau Lascombes produces a second wine labeled Chevalier de Lascombes. Of the two premier fine wines, over 300,000 bottles are shipped out each and every year.
The vineyards at Chateau Lascombes contain a grape selection of around 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and another 5% Petit Verdot. Usually, these outstanding fine wines are mature enough to drink in just under 10 years, and can keep well for up to 30 years.
An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by an impressive bouquet of forest floor, black currants and spring flowers. Full-bodied, opulent and ripe with impressive density and richness and a fuller style than many of its peers, the 2013 Lascombes proves that top-notch viticultural work, an excellent team in the cellar and a strict selection can turn a so-so vintage into something very good. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. - Robert Parker
