The structure and softness of a Second Wine from Margaux

The estate

Bearing the surname of the knight (chevalier), Antoine de Lascombes, since the 17th century, Château Lascombes has been 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.

Winemaking and ageing

Manually harvested, the grapes are sorted and then destemmed. Light crushing occurs during vatting. Pre-fermentation maceration lasts for 10 days at 8°C. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by classic vinification, with daily, light pumping over to promote extraction. Following malolactic fermentation in barrels, ageing lasts for 4 months on lees (100% barrels of one previous wine).

Blend

The 2020 Chevalier de Lascombes is made from a blend of Merlot (50%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (50%).
