Chateau Lascombes – Margaux 2017

RM545.0

The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lascombes gives up lovely scents of roses and lavender over a core of kirsch, crushed black plums and black raspberries with a waft of cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with a rock-solid frame of firm, ripe, grainy tannins, it has a great core of muscular fruit and lingering spicy notes on the finish.

Description

Central character in the history of Chateau Lascombes, who bequeathed his name, Knight Antoine de Lascombes is the oldest known owner. Born in 1625, he anchored the estate’s destiny. One of his descendants, Jean-Francois de Lascombes, councilor in the Parliament of Bordeaux, prosecutor of the king to the admiralty and member of the Academy, later devoted his fortune to the maintenance of the Castle and especially to the quality of his wines. In 1855, Chateau Lascombes was ranked second in the Grands Crus Classes classification. In 1952, Alexis Lichine, owner and merchant, excellent taster and respected by his peers, bought the Chateau and restructured it from top to bottom. A man of experience and winemaker, Dominique Befve arrived at the head of Chateau Lascombes in 2001. His years spent with the greatest – including Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac – drove him on the road to Chateau Lascombes. Under his direction, the vineyard was restructured and winemaking methods completely revised, thanks in particular to more efficient modern facilities. In 2011, the MACSF group buys Chateau Lascombes from Colony Capital and becomes owner, with the desire to always hoist higher the quality of the wines and thus perpetuate the work begun by its first owners. Stephane Dessirier, CEO of MACSF, is now the President of Chateau Lascombes

The Chateau Lascombes vineyard covers 120 hectares of vineyards in the Margaux appellation and 10 hectares in the Haut-Medoc appellation. It is currently one of the largest vineyards of the Crus Classes of 1855. The vineyard of Chateau Lascombes occupies the most sought after plots of Margaux. It benefits from a variety of soils original for the appellation. The vineyard is divided into three distinct groups of roughly equivalent size: a gravelly rump, which bears the Cabernets Sauvignons and the Petit Verdot, the clayey gravel where Merlots and Cabernets Sauvignons are planted, and finally the clay-limestone plots where the Merlot expresses himself perfectly; moreover, this grape variety dominates the vines of the vineyard for half, an originality compared to the other Margaux crus. At Chateau Lascombes, all the work in the vineyard is done by hand. In recent years, and with the arrival of Dominique Befve, many adjustments have been made to improve grape maturity and quality.

At the tasting, Chateau Lascombes offers a wine worthy of the great wines of Margaux, both powerful and elegant, with an important tannic richness.
