This large, fragmented estate must be a logistical nightmare for winemakers, but the 2011, a blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, exhibits a beautifully scented nose of spring flowers, black raspberries, black currants, graphite and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and rich with supple tannins, this terrific example of Lascombes continues their qualitative revolution that began over 15 years ago. One of the stars of the vintage, this beauty can be consumed over the next 20-25 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The sample of Lascombes (50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) has a dusty nose that is lacking clarity although it clears up with aeration, although there remains a vegetal tincture. The palate is sweet and chewy on the entry. Grippy tannins, quite dense and masculine, it is missing some finesse towards the finish. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Straightforward with currant and berry character, medium to full body, and a delicate finish. Like to see more of a middle palate. jamessuckling.com

Nice lilac, sandalwood and mulled cherry notes, with perfumy spice chiming in on the lightly fusty finish. Pretty. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Richly aromatic – cassis, vanilla, violets. Much less aromatic on the palate and the tannins, though fine grained, seem to bring it to an abrupt halt and there's a loss of freshness at the very end. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Well-extracted and polished cassis fruit, good depth on the palate and smooth tannins in the robust Lascombes style. Drink 2015-2025. Decanter.com

Modern and rich and without much Margaux character. Nice sweetness to the fruit though and good length.
