- Closure: Cork
The 112 Hectares of Chateau Lascombes constitute one of the largest vineyards in the Margaux appellation and the Medoc Peninsula. The varietal pool reflects the diversity of soils available to the estate: Cabernet Sauvignon
and Petit Verdot on gravels, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot co-planted on gravelly clays, and the remaining Merlot planted on clayish limestone grounds.
Unusual for this Bordeaux sub region, more than half of the surface is planted with Merlot, and it certainly emphasises the silky softness that Margaux wines are renowned for, while contributing to the singularity of this Cru. Chevalier de Lascombes should be seen as a stand alone cuvee rather than a second rate Chateau Lascombes. The vineyard blocks for the Chevalier are different from those of the 2nd growth and the winemaking is geared toward immediate pleasure and drinkability without compromising structure.
Opaque black dark red colour with deep dark red hue. The nose exhibits lifted ripe blackcurrant top notes followed by some toasty cedary cigar box like characters earth and spice. Rich and full bodied yet seemingly light on its feet at the same time the palate delivers ripe blackcurrant flavours with some underlying toasty cedar, cigar box, earth and spice. Dryish finish with very fine grained well structured tannins. Long aftertaste of blackcurrant, cedar, earthy cigar box and spice.
Cellar 8-10 years (2021-2023).
