TASTING NOTES

"Very balsamic with slightly chewy tannins, this is a rustic expression of the vintage that needs substantial food to give its best. Plenty of freshness at the finish though. Drink now." JamesSuckling.com

"Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of coffee, nuts and charry oak. Supple, sweet and chocolatey. Nicely concentrated, broad and round, showing a lush texture and a good chewy texture. Finishes with sweet tannins and a lingering element of smoky oak. Lovely claret." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"The 2009 Lascombes is blessed with a classy, very well defined, cedar and forest floor scented bouquet with seamlessly integrated oak. This has real style and panache. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a silky smooth texture with sweet black cherry, boysenberry, white pepper and cedar notes. Unlike some others, it is never cloying, but it does need bottle age, at least a decade. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 Lascombes reveals notes of stewed plums, baked blackberries and dried mulberries with touches of sweaty leather, raisin cake and hoisin. Full-bodied with a rugged, chewy frame, the mid-palate gives a good core of earth-laced fruit, finishing a little rustic." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"Tasted blind. Lively deep crimson. Intense, ripe nose that is probably love or loathe. Very rich and sweet with some structure and some oak – still! A showy wine but far from unpleasant!" JancisRobinson.com
