2006 Ch. Lascombes

The appearance of this wine is deep purple in colour with some legs. On nose, it gives quite high intensity aromas of blackcurrant, plum, black cherry jam, earth, smoke and sweet spice. It is dry with medium acidity and alcohol. Fuller than medium body with medium ripe and fine-grained tannin. Medium intensity flavours. Black cherry, plum, violet, bell pepper with touch of vegetal notes. Fairly long length with black cherry finish. (91) Good intensity and concentration with reasonable complexity. Still developing.
