Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Lascombes gives up notes of dried herbs, tilled soil and black olives over a blackcurrant cordial and plums preserves core plus a touch of crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers chewy tannins and bold freshness to support the savory flavors, finishing with an herbal lift.
From the 17th century to the modern day, ten generations of owners have succeeded each other and left their stamp upon the history of Château Lascombes. A destiny paved along its way with colourful characters, who all contributed to the excellence of the wines of Château Lascombes. From the oldest known owner, the Chevalier de Lascombes, who bequeathed the estate his name, to Alexis Lichine, owner and trader, excellent taster and respected by his peers, at the MACSF, which bought Château Lascombes.
The Château Lascombes vineyard is made up of the most sought-after plots in Margaux, composed of a unique mix of soil-types. Today, it is one of the largest vineyards among the classified growths of 1855.
