Ch. Lascombes (0.75 L)
WA: An intriguing blend of 48% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, this inky purple-colored wine is ripe, progressively styled, big, rich, thick and juicy. In other words, the 2012 Lascombes is loaded. No doubt the high percentage of Merlot in the final blend gives this wine a fleshiness and succulence that is unusual in the M¿ªdoc. Rich, pure and full, it should hit its prime in another 4-5 years and last at least two or three decades.
