The wine hits all cylinders in 2010. The average alcohol for the bottled wine is 14%. It has a gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, subtle barbecue smoke and charcoal followed by full body, beautiful intensity, great purity, stature and length. The influence of any oak is minimal, despite the fact that 90% new French oak was used. Needless to say, this is an example of modern-styled winemaking at its finest, and arguments that such wines will not age well, do not represent their terroir , and are soul-less, are totally groundless. Give it five or so years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. This is one of the great Margaux wines of the vintage.||Probably the greatest Lascombes made to date, the 2010 is a blend of 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. The production from this huge estate totals nearly 400,000 bottles. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted twice, the Lascombes is a blend of 45% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The first sample has a very ripe bouquet with crème de cassis and plum-scented fruit, flirting with over-ripeness. The palate is medium-bodied with rather low acidity and a very smudged and a little hard on the finish. A second sample is consistent and I will endeavour to taste this at a later juncture. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Impressive start, with lots of polished and silky tannins here, and an enticing depth of fruit and a caressing finish. Slightly one-dimensional. jamessuckling.com

Slightly jammy, with a ripe, forward profile of plum, prune, blackberry and black cherry backed by an ample dose of dark licorice on the slightly raisiny finish. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Another extremely dark blackish crimson Margaux. Lifted nose and very sweet and sumptuous. Extremely caressing in terms of texture. Wine as massage. But with lots of tannins hidden in there underneath. So much pleasure in store... Though pretty alcoholic! jancisrobinson.com

Very well extracted ripe fruit, shows the ripeness and structure of 2010 and fine ripe tannins for the future. Drink 2017-30. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

Lascombes was one of the few estates in the Medoc to use more Merlot in their blend than they included in 2009. With a blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the wine is deep ruby with blue, purple accents. On the nose, violets, oak, cassis and forest floor aromas are easy to find. Concentrated with ripe fruit, cassis, tannin and wood, this plush textured, tannic wine, finishes with chocolate, cassis and coffee flavors. winecellarinsider.com

The deep ruby purple 2010 Lascombes has notes of plums, blackberries, cedar and cassis, and has a palate packed with ripe fruits. This thick, dense and ripe wine is the only 2010 Margaux I tasted where I felt like reaching for a fork and knife. Enjoy it as a full bodied Bordeaux, made in a modern way with plenty of extraction and polish. asianpalate.com

Not much of a charmer this year. Very concentratedand lacking the silky fruit of the best 2010s. Seems really dry. Perhaps with time this will come around but right now it's a bit brutal
