Château Lascombes - Margaux

Château Lascombes is a wine estate located in Margaux in Gironde. In AOC Médoc, it is ranked second grand cru in the official 1855 Bordeaux wine classification.

What are the specificities of Château Lascombes?

Château Lascombes has a very rich history as it is today the fruit of the succession of 10 generations of owners who have all worked for the excellence of the wines of the Château. Its oldest owner, who also bequeathed its patronymic, is the Chevalier Antoine Lascombes, born in 1625. At that time the estate was united with that of Durfort.

In 1952, Alexis Lichine, who had recently become the owner of the Château Prieuré Lichine, buys the Château and revives the estate to the level it deserves. The MACSF Group, the current owner, buys the estate in 2011.

 

With its 120 hectares of the Margaux appellation and its 10 hectares of the Haut-Médoc appellation, it is one of the largest vineyards of the Crus Classés in 1855.

The vineyard is divided into three distinct groups:

  • gravelly rump (feet of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot)
  • clayey gravel (feet of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • clay-limestone parcel

The vineyard's grape varieties are half dominated by Merlot, which constitutes a specificity compared to the others Châteaux of the Margaux appellation. As a result, the vineyard offers us a blended wine composed of:

  • Merlot 50%
  • Cabernet Sauvignon 45%
  • Petit Verdot 5%

The wine is aged in French oak barrels (renewed from 80 to 100% per year) for a period of 18 to 20 months.

The Château Lascombes is renowned for its power, elegance, tannic richness, and unctuousness. As time goes by, its aromatic complexity, more and more suave, is appreciated.

The estate also produces a second wine "Le Chevalier Lascombes". The harvest is manual and carried out in crates with double sorting. The vinification is carried out in thermo-regulated intox and wood vats for 30 to 40 days. The wine is then matured on its lees for an average of 4 months. Chevalier Lascombes is a blended wine with a higher proportion of Merlot than the Grand Vin. It is then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The estate takes the same care with its Second Wine as it does with Château Lascombes. The average annual production is 200,000 bottles.
