Medoc crus classes 2009
Château Lascombes, Margaux 2CC
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 18.5 AG 16.5 SS 16.5
Opulent bouquet of very ripe black fruits. Rich, creamy, suave, highly concentrated, spicy and assertive – a powerful and muscular style but none the worse for that. Masculine and more Pauillac in style, with impressive length. Will go the distance.
Price £62–£90 Widely available at leading Bordeaux merchants
Judges: Steven Brook, Alun Griffiths MW and Steven Spurrier
