2007 Margaux 2e Cru Classe
The 2007 Chateau Lascombe reveals a very dark, violet-tinted purple-red colour. The first nose is shut with very subtle hints of roasted coffee which unveil the wine complexity at the swirl. Scents of ripe black fruits and cherry largely command over hints of wood. The attack is forward. This Margaux 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux is concentrated, elegant, delicate, round, and rather feminine than strong. The tannins are very present and distinguished while tannins from wood remain delicate. The finish offers ripe fruit and lovely length.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Lascombes has a simple bouquet that is almost Burgundy-like in style, quite pure but a little monochromatic: simple redcurrant and strawberry scents laced with cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin, very smooth in the mouth, with a more high-toned finish than its peers. There is something quite lactic about this Margaux, easygoing but lacking the intellect of its peers. It is a Lascombes that is probably à point, but it should continue giving pleasure over the next decade. Tasted February 2017.
