Château Lascombes 2011

Bordeaux - Margaux - Red - 13.5° Château Lascombes Château Lascombes 2011 1004/11
  • Parker : 93
  • J. Robinson : 15,5
With one hundred eighteen hectares of vines (including one hundred twelve in the Margaux appellation and six in the Haut- Médoc appellation) Château Lascombes is one of the largest estates in the Médoc. Included among the second growths in the 1855 classification, the estate has a prestigious history going back to Chevalier de Lascombes, born in 1625. The terroir consists of forty of the finest plots in the Margaux appellation. The wine is extremely well-known and much-appreciated on export markets. The best traditional and modern techniques are used in the vineyard and cellar to produce powerful, concentrated, fruity, and elegant wine. The fact that the various plots are widely scattered gives Lascombes remarkable complexity, balance, and ageing potential. Colony Capital acquired the estate in April 2001 and a new era began under the management of Dominique Befve. Since then, the cellars and vineyard have been entirely restructured in order to produce wine worthy of Lascombes' classification and appellation.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
