2019 Chateau Lascombes Margaux Pre-Arrival
Winemaker Notes: Fresh fruits, violet, flowers, a bit of black cherry and blackcurrant for an elegant nose, bright and balanced. The mouth is rich, very velvety, fleshy, elegant concentration with meaningful fruits. The finish is long, sustained, velvety, expressive and fresh.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit-Verdot
James Suckling - "This is extremely linear and refined with a super-fine line of tannins running through the center of the wine. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and sophisticated, with a long, long finish. Plenty of blackcurrant, dark chocolate, walnut and cedar in the aftertaste. Try after 2025."
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2019 Château Lascombes showed well, with outstanding notes of cassis fruits as well as cedarwood and tobacco, and it displays more dark, earthy nuances with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has terrific balance, building tannins, and the vintage's pure, fresh, and focused style front and center. Hide bottles for 4-6 years and enjoy them over the following two decades. Best after 2026. Rating: 93+"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Offering up a rich bouquet of blackberries, cassis, burning embers and sweet spices, the 2019 Lascombes is full-bodied, lavish and textural, with a voluminous core of fruit, lively acids and plenty of ripe, powdery tannin that asserts itself on the youthfully firm finish. This is a powerful, muscular style of Margaux that remains nicely balanced in its register. Best After 2027 Rating : 92+"
