A concentrated and aromatic Second Wine from Margaux

The estate

Bearing the surname of the knight (chevalier), Antoine de Lascombes, since the 17th century, Château Lascombes is marked by the ten generations of owners who have shaped its history. Since 2011, it has been owned by the mutual insurance group MACSF. The wines at Château Lascombes are recognised as ranking amongst the greatest in the Margaux appellation.

Chevalier de Lascombes is the Second Wine of the estate.

The vineyard

120 hectares in the Margaux appellation make up the vineyard of this Classified Second Growth in 1855. This vineyard is planted on a mosaic of plots where soils are made up, depending on their location, of gravelly hilltops, clayey gravels and clay-limestone plots.

Blend

This 2016 Chevalier de Lascombes is made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting

Opening with a bouquet of ripe black fruits, the 2016 Chevalier des Lascombes seduces with its bold attack. The concentrated palate is marked by its subtle union between power and elegance. Intense fruity aromas mix with a tannic structure of great finesse.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
I tasted two samples of the 2016 Chevalier de Lascombes but both were showing signs of brettanomyces, one more severely than the other. I will reserve judgement for now.
