An intriguing blend of 48% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, this inky purple-colored wine is ripe, progressively styled, big, rich, thick and juicy. In other words, the 2012 Lascombes is loaded. No doubt the high percentage of Merlot in the final blend gives this wine a fleshiness and succulence that is unusual in the Medoc. Rich, pure and full, it should hit its prime in another 4-5 years and last at least two or three decades.

Combining power and elegance, smoothness and tannins, Chateau Lascombes is a wine of great complexity. In its youth, its depth of colour never fails to impress. Finesse and softness on the palate are complemented by stylish, fine-grained tannins. Chateau Lascombes should be enjoyed as it ages over the years to enable full appreciation of its aromatic complexity and the development of its ever-more suave structure in bottle.

NOSE
At first discreet, the nose bursts with black fruit aromas after swirling the glass. A wonderful array of very ripe fruit, such as blackberries, sun-drenched cherries with chocolate and mocha notes coming through. Great aromatic complexity and lovely finesse.

PALATE
A fresh, soft entry on the palate. All the power and structure is counter-balanced by the roundness, flesh, vivacity and elegance of the flavours. Against its velvet backdrop the fullness of the wine comes immediately centre-stage, showcasing its tight-knit, fine-grained tannic structure, the hallmark of this 2010 vintage. Black fruit and spice flavours follow, and the finish is amazingly long.
