Critic Notes

A brilliant effort for the vintage, the 2007 Lascombes is an impressive, larger-scaled wine with beautiful notes of incense, spring flowers, blackberries, cassis, and subtle spicy oak. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, with no hard edges, this voluptuously textured Margaux can be drunk now or cellared for 15 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2010

Score: 91-/100Robert Parker

Very attractive dark chocolate and blueberry aromas follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a medium finish. A little tight, but stylish. Best after 2012. 14,585 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2010

Score: 88-/100Wine Spectator

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Lascombes has a simple bouquet that is almost Burgundy-like in style, quite pure but a little monochromatic: simple redcurrant and strawberry scents laced with cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin, very smooth in the mouth, with a more high-toned finish than its peers. There is something quite lactic about this Margaux, easygoing but lacking the intellect of its peers. It is a Lascombes that is probably a point, but it should continue giving pleasure over the next decade. Tasted February 2017. Jun 2017, www.robertparker.com

After profiling the three Pauillac first-growths, we turn our attention to the last of Médoc, the heavenly, ethereal Chateau Margaux.  Chateau Margaux – A Beautiful Chateau Home to Gorgeous Wines While all of the first-growths have helped shape the history of Bordeaux winemaking, none perhaps has left a legacy quite like that Chateau Margaux. Its stately pavilion is ...

Assessing the blend: 2011 Chateau Margaux
Me: “Paul, are you sure that sample is Merlot, it tastes a lot like Cabernet?” Paul Pontallier: “Yes absolutely it’s a Merlot, amazing eh?” Me: “Paul, are you really sure this isn’t a Cabernet?” Paul Pontallier: “Hmmm, no, not any more. Let me check…” It had started as a simple question in late Nov 2011 when I was at Ch ...
