Direct from the Chateau Lascombes’s (2nd Growth) Cellar, we have a library vintage of legendary character and depth. Wine Spectator’s 99-pt 2010 in Left Bank saw some of the finest Margaux ever produced. This Second-Growth is an absolute classic, Rober Parker, Jr. called Lascombes’ 2010, “the greatest Lascombes made to date” and called it “One of the great Margaux wines of the vintage.”

2010 Lascombes 96 pts, Robert Parker
“The wine hits all cylinders in 2010. It has a gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, subtle barbecue smoke and charcoal followed by full body, beautiful intensity, great purity, stature and length. The influence of any oak is minimal, despite the fact that 90% new French oak was used. Needless to say, this is an example of modern-styled winemaking at its finest, and arguments that such wines will not age well, do not represent their terroir , and are soulless, are totally groundless. Give it five or so years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. This is one of the great Margaux wines of the vintage.”
Probably the greatest Lascombes made to date, the 2010 is a blend of 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot.
