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.
