    93-96 WS / 94-95 JS / 92-94 WA / 91-93 JD / 90-93 VM / 92 DE

    Dark and winey, with steeped currant and plum fruit forming the core, inlaid with a licorice root note and backed by a suave mesquite hint on the finish. Fine-grained. A serious wine. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

    This is a dense and very structured young red with currant and citrus character, such as burnt orange. Full-bodied with chewy yet polished tannins and a long and flavorful finish. - James Suckling

    The 2018 Lascombes is deep garnet-purple in color and a little reduced to begin, offering tar and scorched earth notions over an emerging core of baked blackcurrants, plum preserves and charcuterie plus hints of bay leaves and underbrush. Full, richly fruited and laden with ripe black fruits and earthy suggestions, it has a solid foundation of firm, grainy tannins and finishes long and savory. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

    The 2018 Château Lascombes showed nicely, possessing plenty of richness as well as a light, elegant, weightless profile. Classy notes of black and blue fruits, smoked earth, and ample minerality all give way to a medium to full-bodied Margaux that’s not a heavyweight yet shines for its balance and purity. It’s going to fill out nicely with 3-5 years of cellaring. - Jeb Dunnuck

    The 2018 Lascombes is quite attractive in this vintage. Black cherry, plum, cloves, leather, tobacco and licorice all run through a succulent, supple Margaux that will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is an especially modern, fruit-forward style. Tasted two times.- Antonio Galloni

    For me, Lascombes always manages to get away with its exuberance and powerful push because it combines this with floral aromatics and a sense of unashamed enjoyment. It has more of an oak finesse than some, as you may expect, and it's not quite as juicy as the 2015 and 2016 but it settles into the glass and shows layers of complexity, a big punch of fruit and clear ambition. Good yields of 45hl/ha. 40% new oak. - Jane Anson, Decanter
