92-94/100 Andrew Caillard MW. Deep colour. Superb blackcurrant pastille/ dark chocolate aromas with some violet notes. Fresh blackcurrant/ mocha flavours, fine sinuous graphite tannins and lovely mid-palate richness. Cassis/cedary finish. Very good.
91-93/100 Robert parker Jr. A blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot that tips the scales at 14% natural alcohol, the 2011 Lascombes is another knock-out effort. (Michel Rolland is the consultant.) Made in a more modern style with plenty of toasty oak intermixed with blueberry and black currant fruit as well as hints of licorice and camphor, the wine-s textured lushness on the mid-palate, sweet, well-integrated tannins and full-throttle finish result in an impressive Margaux to drink over the next 15 years.
17/20 Steven Spurrier, Decanter. Well-extracted and polished cassis fruit, good depth on the palate and smooth tannins in the robust Lascombes style. Drink 2015-2025.
