Chateau Lascombes 2002
A candidate for one of the top wines of the vintage, Lascombes has turned in a brilliant effort with a deep ruby/purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of plums, cassis, black cherries, and flowers. It boasts a terrific texture, medium to full body, an expansive, multi-layered mid-palate and a tremendously pure finish revealing nicely integrated wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin. This is a beauty of precision and power.
Winespectator / James Suckling (87)
Aromas of blackberries and lots of toasted oak. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Modern and well done.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
