Château Lascombes 2009
The blend is 48% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Petit Verdot. It is a great classic with outstanding ageing potential.
A fresh, delicate and fruity nose. Subtle aromas of spices and black fruits mingling with some notes of roasted coffee beans.
The entry on the palate is clean and at the same time soft and velvety. The mid-palate is dense, powerful and elegant with well-ripened black fruits. The oak, though present, comes through with finesse and is subtly integrated in the wine. The tannins are silky. The finish is long. Wonderful complexity.
