Lascombes 2005 displays a lovely intense purple-tinted black hue. The nose expresses subtle spices, black fruits, liquorice and roasted coffee beans notes. To the palate, woody notes gove place to strong fruit aromas. The wine is balanced, fresh, strong, round and silky. The beautiful and noble tannins perfectly complete this Margaux cru classé.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Spicy oak, earth and cedar wood jump from the glass of this fruity, medium-bodied wine. It is not showing quite the density I would have expected, but it is still well-endowed and more evolved than some of the top efforts from the Margaux appellation. It has a dark, ruby/plum color, a slightly narrow finish, and less intensity than I remember. For whatever reason, this didn't jump out of the horizontal tasting of the appellation of Margaux in 2005. Moreover, I loved this wine from barrel and post-bottling.
