Direct from the Chateau Lascombes’s (2nd Growth) Cellar, we have a library vintage of legendary character and depth. The 2009 Lascombes, Robert Parker Jr. called “pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent” giving it a rave 94pt. review. Considered by some to be the best vintage of Bordeaux of the past three decades. Ideal dry and long growing conditions in the Left Bank allowed for beautifully balanced wines, with the Lascombes a perfect example of a modern style.

94 pts, Robert Parker
The 2009, which is inky blue/purple to the rim, is a final blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot at 14% natural alcohol. The wine has a beautiful blueberry-scented nose with hints of acacia flowers, licorice, graphite and some subtle charcoal and background oak. Clearly a modern style of Margaux, it is pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent, and the high glycerin and silky texture of 2009 are brilliantly displayed in this wine. Drink it over the next 15+ years, although it is certainly capable of lasting well past two decades.
Perfectly stored, highly-rated 2nd Growth Bordeaux with 10 years of age and another 15-25 more years ahead of them.
