Chateau Lascombes 2009 is a deep, brilliant purple colour, still showing some violet glints. Fresh, delicate and fruity on the nose, with subtle aromas of spices and black fruits mingling with notes of roasted coffee beans. The palate is initially clean yet soft and velvety, leading to a mid-palate that is dense, powerful and elegant, bursting with well-ripened black fruits. The oak comes through but with great finesse and it integrates subtly with the wine. The tannins are silky and the long finish is beautifully complex.

This 2009 vintage is one of the finest wines to date from Château Lascombes. Equal quantities of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with just a touch of Petit Verdot have been fashioned into a super concentrated, silky, almost sexy wine, somewhat mid-Atlantic in style. It is very approachable now but it will be better for another few years in the cellar. Don't rush to drink it even then as it will still have many years of life ahead of it.

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2009, which is inky blue/purple to the rim, is a final blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot at 14% natural alcohol. The wine has a beautiful blueberry-scented nose with hints of acacia flowers, liquorice, graphite and some subtle charcoal and background oak. Clearly a modern style of Margaux, it is pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent, and the high glycerin and silky texture of 2009 are brilliantly displayed in this wine. Drink it over the next 15+ years, although it is certainly capable of lasting well past two decades. 94 Points
