Lascombes

Margaux Protected Designation of Origin, and Second Great Classed Growth

The wines of Chateau Lascombes

Chateau Lascombes (Bordeaux left bank) is a Margaux Second Grand Cru Classe (Classification of 1855). The owner changed twice in the recent years: Colony Capital bought the estate in 2001, then, in 2011 it was sold to the MACSF (health professionals association). The Lascombes vineyards are divided in two parts: 112 hectares in Margaux Protected Designation of Origin, and 6 hectares in Haut Medoc designation. Domaine Lascombes's vines grow on clay-gravel soils and are taken care of according to the sustainable winegrowing principles. The vines are about 40 years old. Domaine Lascombes grow 3 grapes varieties to create its cuvees: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot, for its Red Bordeaux production. 

Chateau Lascombes produces 3 red wines: the 1st wine is the Lascombes Great Wine, the second is called "Chevalier de Lascombes", and the third one, "Le Haut Medoc de Lascombes", is made from 6 hectares of vines that grow in the Haut Medoc designation. Lascombes' first wine displays an elegant and powerful personality, it's quite smooth, and it now shows an improved tannic structure. It's a complex and deep-coloured wine. It displays finesse and mellowness on the palate, with a very refined tannic texture. It's got a great ageing potential of 15 years and sometimes more in the cellar. Their second wine, "Chevalier de Lascombes", is made up from different plots than the ones used to make the Great Wine. It displays a less powerful but smoother personality compared to the first wine, and it can be enjoyed in its youth (up to 10 years of age). Finally, the third cuvee called "Le Haut Medoc de Lascombes", is a round, vivid and fruity wine that shows great aromatic length. It's a wine to drink while it's still young (up to 5 years in the cellar at the most). Here is a list of Chateau Lascombes's best vintages: 20152014201020092005200019951990198919831982. As from 2001, famous consulting oenologist Michel Rolland has helped the estate to get back on tracks. The estate's yields have been largely reduced, which consequently led to great tasting notes during en primeur tastings. This put Lascombes back in the forefront of Margaux's best wines, that's why the Lascombes's wines are a good investment to make, since their prices are not as excessive as some wines can be.
