Tasting Note Robert Parker 96/100 Vintage 2010 - 28th Feb 2013
The wine hits all cylinders in 2010. The average alcohol for the bottled wine is 14%. It has a gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, subtle barbecue smoke and charcoal followed by full body, beautiful intensity, great purity, stature and length. The influence of any oak is minimal, despite the fact that 90% new French oak was used. Needless to say, this is an example of modern-styled winemaking at its finest, and arguments that such wines will not age well, do not represent their terroir , and are soul-less, are totally groundless. Give it five or so years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. This is one of the great Margaux wines of the vintage. Probably the greatest Lascombes made to date, the 2010 is a blend of 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. The production from this huge estate totals nearly 400,000 bottles.

Wine Spectator 91/100 Vintage 2010
Dark and nicely toasty, with ample espresso and ganache up front, followed by steeped fig, blackberry and black currant fruit that rumbles through the finish. Features ample tarry grip, but eschews minerality and finesse for a direct and toast-driven approach. Best from 2014 through 2026.

Gilbert & Gaillard 98/100 - 2010 Vintage
Dark-hued. Very delicate nose revealing a marvellous fusion of black fruit and oak. Sterling quality texture, delicate aromas and above-average length. A great bottling that still has lots to offer. Tasted: 01-Jun-2015

Jancis Robinson 17.5/20 - 2010 Vintage - When to drink: 2016 to 2030
Open knit, fragrant, juicy, expressive. Cranberry and blackcurrant fruit with a gentle clove and cedar spice. A stone-cold classic example of the genre. Soft tannic bite. Refreshing acidity. Richard Hemming MW. Tasted: 01-Nov-2014

Jeannie Cho Lee 90/100 - 2010 Vintage
The deep ruby purple 2010 Lascombes has notes of plums, blackberries, cedar and cassis, and has a palate packed with ripe fruits. This thick, dense, ripe wine is the only 2010 Margaux I tasted where I felt like reaching for some food and my fork and knife. Enjoy it as a full-bodied Bordeaux, made in a modern way with plenty of extraction and polish. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Maturity: Young. Tasted: 01-Apr-2011
