Chateau Lascombes 2006 is an intense and bright purple colour. The nose displays black fruits in brandy and subtly toasted oak, with aromas of liquorice and cocoa beans with a hint of vanilla. The palate is supple and proceeds in a velvety fashion, smooth and nicely concentrated. The fruitiness is still very much to the fore and it is accompanied by discrete oak flavours that envelope the elegant tannic frame.

Over the last two decades, Château Lascombes has risen from relative obscurity to stardom thanks to the investment and dedication of its respective owners. The 2006 vintage is a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot that spent 4 months on its lees and was aged in 90% new French oak.

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
One of the more modern-styled wines from the appellation of Margaux, always with a prominent overlay of toasty new oak, espresso roast, and sweet black fruits, this wine seems more restrained and has backed off its concentration with the 2006. It is a mid-weight, elegant wine with notes of liquorice and blackcurrants as well as a hint of tobacco leaf. The wine is concentrated and obviously outstanding, but the moderate tannins in the finish suggest cellaring it for 2-3 years and drinking it over the following 15-20. 90 Points
