Lascombes Bordeaux Blend 2005
Beautiful & Elegant Bordeaux

2005 Chateau Lascombes,Margaux.. I've had several recent vintages of this wine and this might be the best yet. Dark purple in color it is still somewhat primary but there are many secondary profiles beginning to show. The nose has dirt and leather and when it opened, blackberries and the Margaux perfume/flower elegant nose. It is now medium bodied and a very balanced wine with sweet black fruit and a plush mouth feel. More precise than some other bordeaux's I have had recently which I think bodes well for the long run. I would not open another for 3-5 yrs. unless you have a lot and want to try one young as this is definitely a long lived wine. A great buy for '05's IF you like bordeaux and the Margaux type of profile.

Almost black-purple to the edge. Nose of pencil shavings, ketchup, and sweet fruits. Very big and concentrated. Dusty in the mouth. Medium and plesant herbal and cherry finish. Decnet but at this stage it is nothing extra-ordinary. Time in the bottle shall suit this Margaux well.
