This Second Growth Margaux has been on a real hot streak since 2000 under the new ownership team of Colony Capital. The expertise of quality-driven Bordeaux professionals such as Michel Rolland, Alain Raynaud and Bruno Lemoine (Montrose) resulted in significantly lower yields compared to the 1970s and 80s and made Bordeaux insiders reminisce about the glory days of the estate when the late Alexis Lichine was in charge. Planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, this silky, sultry, aromatic wine is a must-have in the 2005 vintage. In 2006 Parker wrote: 'In less than five years this property has emerged as one of the appellation's up and coming stars thanks to the infusion of money from the American conglomerate, Colony Capital, as well as the braintrust that now oversees the winemaking, Yves Vatelot (of Reignac fame) and the internationally renowned oenologist, Michel Rolland.'

Wine Advocate A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 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 a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-35 years. Score: 95. —Robert Parker, April 2008.

Wine Spectator Dark in color, with an impressive nose of licorice, toasty oak, chocolate and blackberry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very pretty and structured. Best after 2012. 25,000 cases made. Score: 93. —James Suckling, March 31, 2008.

Wine Enthusiast Lascombes is approaching the form its status as a second growth suggests. This wine is close, packed with dark fruits, figs and juicy black currant extract. The aftertaste has some bitterness, with layers of toast and spice coming through strongly. Score: 91. —Roger Voss, June 01, 2008.
