Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

94 RP / 94 JS / 93 DE / 92+ VM

The 2009, which is inky blue/purple to the rim, is a final blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot at 14% natural alcohol. The wine has a beautiful blueberry-scented nose with hints of acacia flowers, licorice, graphite and some subtle charcoal and background oak. Clearly a modern style of Margaux, it is pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent, and the high glycerin and silky texture of 2009 are brilliantly displayed in this wine. Drink it over the next 15+ years, although it is certainly capable of lasting well past two decades. - Robert Parker

Aromas of black tea, blackberries, blueberries and coffee bean, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Lovely mouth feel. Very well done. Try in 2019. - James Suckling

In 2009, Lascombes was still going long on exuberant expression, and it's still apparent after 10 years. The concentrated palate of ripe fruit, exotic spices and black olives, with some coal, tar and cloves on the finish giving a heavy oak stamp, is more about Lascombes and less about Margaux. It's good quality, but be aware of what you will be drinking. Drinking Window 2019 - 2036 - Jane Anson, Decanter February 2019

The 2009 Lascombes is blessed with a classy, very well defined, cedar and forest floor scented bouquet with seamlessly integrated oak. This has real style and panache. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a silky smooth texture with sweet black cherry, boysenberry, white pepper and cedar notes. Unlike some others, it is never cloying, but it does need bottle age, at least a decade. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
