“Château Lascombes 2005 is the reason why we drink wine” Robert Parker

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.

On swirling the glass, the wine reveals a subtle nose of spices, black fruits and liquorice, all enveloped in fine, toasted notes and roasted coffee bean aromas.


The palate, following a smooth entry, is explosive, while the discreet oak only comes through in the background, leaving the fruit to come to the fore. The 2005 vintage is constructed around a perfect balance of freshness, power, roundness and suaveness, while very classy tannins add the ideal finishing touch. Château Lascombes 2005 is a wine of extraordinary opulence.
