Chateau Lascombes 2001

90+ points

Margaux, Bordeaux, France. 13%

The Wine Doctor said this vintage of Lascombes appeared oddly forward, though delicious. But that’s not really the sort of wine I encountered. This is youthful, quite dense with a good deal of slightly intrusive oak. I enjoyed the meaty flavours (unusual for Margaux), it’s an interesting wine.

Lascombes is returning to fine form after a reported poor patch in the 90s.

  1. Muscular indeed…Ive got a few more bottles sitting around. It’s early yet for this fella. When do you think I should open another? Im thinking to give it about 5-6 more years.

    Thoughts?
