Chateau Lascombes 2005

Parker writes on Lascombes 2005,' A gorgeous example of Lascombes, 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with dense purple colour, 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, whole body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This(sic, 2005) is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age 30-35 years.' He accorded 95 Points.

The team finds Robert Parker expresses well but probably missed the violet, fragrances, and associated nuances. the 2005 is above 2012 and 2011 we tasted earlier.
