Decanter: Massively extracted ripe fruit – lots of depth but little finesse evident so far but it will age well. 90 Points

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: A frankly fruit-driven style, but delicious, with exuberant plum and blackberry paste flavors leading the way, backed by a melted licorice note. The velvety finish has good underlying acidity. 90 - 93 Points
Ratings
James Suckling: This is so powerful and rich with fantastic depth of fruit and tannin structure. Full body, chewy yet polished in impressive. Stretches the limit on tannin extraction but it’s all there. Should develop beautifully in the barrel. 94 - 95 Points
Awards
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Lascombes has a dense, rich bouquet with licorice and cigar box-infused black fruit and a touch of wilted violet. It feels rather tight-fisted compared to its peers in the Margaux appéllation. The palate is very smooth on the entry, plenty of new oak here, balanced but for want of a better word, missing some personality - especially on the finish that feels just a little labored. 89 - 91 Points
Production Notes
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
Other Notes
Known as one of the most powerful and tannic Margaux, the Lascombes wine shows more race and finesse in the latest vintages. It offers a beautiful volume and an intense and sweet fruit from ripe harvest.
