ABOUT THE WINE
Château Lascombes, 2ème Cru Classé in 1855, bears the name of its first owner, Chevalier de Lascombes, born in 1625. At the turn of the 18th century, Jean-Francois Lascombes, a counselor at the Bordeaux Parliament, dedicated his wealth to making a great wine at Lascombes. The existing chateau was built in 1867 by Chaix d'Est Ange. Alexis Lichine took over the property in 1952, and oversaw a significant restructuring of the vineyard and cellars. In 1971, he sold to the English brewer, Bass-Charrington, who sold the estate to its current owners, American company Colony Capital in 2001.
With 14% alcohol by volume, this Lascombes is perhaps one of the finest wine produced. Not a shy wine in any way, it over-delivers in every way one can imagine. Richness, complexity, smoothness. Drink it over the next 20 to 30 years.
Venison, creamy beef dishes, hard cheeses.
An incredible value for such an exceptional vintage and a respected chateau.
