Château Lascombes 2007
The blend is 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot. It should continue giving pleasure over the next decade.
The 2007 Lascombes has a simple bouquet that is almost Burgundy-like in style, quite pure but a little monochromatic: simple redcurrant and strawberry scents laced with cedar.
The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin, very smooth in the mouth, with a more high-toned finish than its peers. There is something quite lactic about this Margaux, easygoing but lacking the intellect of its peers.
It is a Lascombes that is probably à point, but it should continue giving pleasure over the next decade.
