"This is extremely linear and refined with a super-fine line of tannins running through the center of the wine. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and sophisticated, with a long, long finish. Plenty of blackcurrant, dark chocolate, walnut and cedar in the aftertaste. Try after 2025."

"The Lascombes 2019 has a deep garnet-purple color. It bursts on the scene with flamboyant scents of blueberry pie, blackcurrant pastilles, and kirsch, followed by suggestions of candied violets, crushed rocks, and licorice. The full-bodied palate is dense, rich, and opulent, featuring velvety tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and layered."

"The 2019 Lascombes is a huge wine packed with black cherry, chocolate, new leather, spice and licorice. Creamy, rich and expansive, Lascombes is endowed with notable power and sheer breadth. As always, Lascombes is a heady Margaux that pushes the edges, but I find all the elements very well-balanced."
"Purplish purple. A lot of complexity and fruity intensity in the nose. Nice aromas of black fruits, tobacco leaves and licorice. On the palate, the wine is silky and supported by powerful coated tanins. Beautiful aromatic intensity, a lot of freshness and a long finish. What a superb success of Lascombes." - Yves Beck
"Combining power and elegance, smoothness and tannins, Château Lascombes is a wine of great complexity. In its youth, its depth of colour never fails to impress. Finesse and softness on the palate are complemented by stylish, fine-grained tannins. Château Lascombes should be enjoyed as it ages over the years to enable full appreciation of its aromatic complexity and the development of its ever-more suave structure in bottle.
Fresh fruits, violet, flowers, a bit of black cherry and blackcurrant for an elegant nose, bright and balanced. The mouth is rich, very velvety, fleshy, elegant concentration with meaningful fruits. The finish is long, sustained, velvety, expressive and fresh." - Winery
