Critical Acclaim

"A blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot that tips the scales at 14% natural alcohol, the 2011 Lascombes is another knock-out effort. (Michel Rolland is the consultant.) Made in a more modern style with plenty of toasty oak intermixed with blueberry and black currant fruit as well as hints of licorice and camphor, the wine-s textured lushness on the mid-palate, sweet, well-integrated tannins and full-throttle finish result in an impressive Margaux to drink over the next 15 years.

"Big, bold and fruity, this shows plenty of rich blackberry-juice flavor and fine tannins. The fruit and tannins are well balanced, with a juicy character on the finish.

"Nice lilac, sandalwood and mulled cherry notes, with perfumy spice chiming in on the lightly fusty finish. Pretty.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points"

"Deep purple. Perfumed aromas of dark berries and violet. Clean and fresh, with above-average concentration for the vintage to its of creamy-sweet dark fruit, milk chocolate and coffee flavors. Finishes smooth and long. This is yet another creamy Lascombes, but less overripe and low in acidity than recent vintages. In fact, Lascombes is one of the few real successes in Margaux in 2011.
