Medium to full bodied. Tannins integrated perfectly. Plum notes. Medium dark fruit. Complexity on the aroma. Red and dark fruit intertwined. Slightly earthy. Pleasing finish at 30 to 40 seconds. Has the legs to go a long time. For many of us, “Why postpone pleasure?” ! Drinking well now! — 4 days ago
I quite like this as an easy drinking white- jasmine, tart apple, maybe some kind of stone fruit? Wish I had more of it! — 10 months ago

Nice and light white with a slight fruit finish. French tasting. Would enjoy this in the summer. Received in my wine advent calendar, day 2. — a year ago
The right order with our Porterhouses. Still has the Margaux elegance presence but, lacks the quality of fruit & characteristics of the 06 Rauzan-Segla.
Not the best vintage I’ve had from Lascombes. Interesting as this was a warm vintage. All my previous 2003’s have shown bright, ripe fruit. The fruits were dull & lacked freshness which, is very different than the other 03’s I’ve had to this point. I don’t know if the staff trimmed too much canopy and the fruit got too much heat and UV light, therefore losing freshness along with a lack of water during the season.
This will still drink well for another 5-8 years before it declines. Our Porterhouses helped contribute to a better experience masking some of its shortcomings.
The wine showed dull, dark fruit with more earthiness than expected given its evolution from its bottle age. Dry soil & clay, stones, dry forest floor, dry tobacco, used leather and withering & dark flowers. The acidity was pleasant but not up to par. The finish lacked Margaux beauty but, it did pop up here and there. Just no consistency. The fruit was flat and lots of dry earth on the long set. Not bad just no up to what I expect from Lascombes and the vintage.

Pretty excited to be getting the 2020 to sell anyday. Just tried the 2019 and really loved it. Got to listen to the winemaker. Amazing! He is also the winemaker for Chateau Rauzan Segla and Chateau Canon. Really cool. Looking forward to the 2020! — 7 months ago
