Lascombes 2009

Old-school style- no high extraction, little wood spice and sweet vanilla, no toasty oak, and few hints of cigar box and mint- instead, the medium to deep garnet-coloured Lascombes 2009 reveal notes of stewed plums, baked blackberries and dried mulberries with touches of sweaty leather, raisin cake. With a rugged, chewy frame, the mid-palate gives a good core of earth-laced fruit, finishing a little rustic, mineral with ample and resolved tannins. Bodied.

The scores are impressive, though. Awarded 97 points, GG wrote, 'Beautiful dense red, still in its youth. The oak presence and lovely intense ripe red fruit still mark the expressive nose. On the palate, a rich, silky, full wine starts to deliver it powerfully. Poised for a great future.' Edited. Since this tasting note was from 2014, and based on that, it seems that Lascombes 2009 has evolved a lot and will continue to grow. The rest of the scores are 93(Larsson, VertdeVIn)and a host of 92s(WE, WS, JCL, JL etc.). So, the quality is still stable in the eyes of the commentators.
