The dark, beautifully deep color displays brilliant purple hues. After swirling, a subtle nose of spices, black fruits and licorice comes through, enveloped by subtle toasty notes with roasted coffee beans. The palate, after a supple entry, is explosive whereas the discreet oak comes through subtly in the background, leaving the way for the fruit to come to the fore front. The 2005 vintage is structured around a perfect balance of freshness, power, roundness, smoothness and very elegant tannins, which together make up an ideal harmony.

A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-35 years.

Dark in color, with an impressive nose of licorice, toasty oak, chocolate and blackberry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very pretty and structured. Best after 2012. 25,000 cases made.

Lascombes is approaching the form its status as a second growth suggests. This wine is close, packed with dark fruits, figs and juicy black currant extract. The aftertaste has some bitterness, with layers of toast and spice coming through strongly.
