Château Lascombes

Chteau Lascombes

Ref: A042609

2eme Cru Classé Margaux

Giant, almost black colour, intense cassis and new oak nose and masterful concentration of multi-dimensional fruit and tannins. This clearly has years ahead of it. Drink 2018 - 2030.

Lascombes is one of the largest eatates in Margaux these days and got its name in the 17th century from its first owner, a knight called Antoine de Lascombes. Between 1951 and 71 the estate was owned by Alexis Lichine and was bought by Bass Charrington who eventually sold it to the American investment business Colony Capital in 2001.

Colony Capital have invested heavily in the property and in particular have installed a state-of-the-art, stainless steel cuvier. The blend at Lascombes is made up of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, and the wine is aged in oak barriques (60% new) for 18 months. Lascombes produces elegant, well-balanced clarets, rich in succulent creamy blackcurrant fruits, which gain further complexity and depth with ageing.

This property is definitly on the up and up.
