The Château Lascombes vineyard covers 120 hectares (296 acres) in the Margaux appellation, as well as 10 hectares (24 acres) in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Today, it is one of the largest vineyards among the classified growths of 1855.
The Château Lascombes vineyard is made up of the most sought-after plots in Margaux, composed of a unique mix of soil-types for this appellation. The vineyard is divided into three distinct blocks of roughly the same surface area: a gravelly outcrop planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, a block of clay-gravel made up of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and finally clay-limestone plots, where the Merlot finds its optimal expression. Interestingly, Merlot is the predominant variety in the vineyard’s grape composition, making up 50% of the total, a unique feature in the Margaux appellation.
Birth of the Knight of Lascombes, who gave his name to the château.
Combining power and elegance, smoothness and tannins, Château Lascombes is a wine of great complexity. In its youth, its depth of colour never fails to impress. Finesse and softness on the palate are complemented by stylish, fine-grained tannins. Château Lascombes should be enjoyed as it ages over the years to enable full appreciation of its aromatic complexity and the development of its ever-more suave structure in bottle.Discover this wine
