It is difficult to remain insensitive to the charm of Château Lascombes, covered in vegetation and nestled in the heart of the Margaux appellation. Its name was given by its owner, Chevalier Antoine de Lascombes, in 1625. Since then, several generations of Lascombes have succeeded one another, each contributing to the influence of the property.
The Château Lascombes will thus be crowned Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855, at the time of the famous classification officialized for the Paris World Fair. Having belonged since 2011 to a French mutual insurance company, Château passed in November 2022 to the American Lawrence family. Owners of Domaine in Napa Valley, their goal is to continue the quest for perfection for this iconic Medoc cru.
The vineyard is situated on clay gravel and clay-limestone soils, and reaches a size of 130 hectares of vines of which 50% are Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The wines are aged for 18 months for the grand vin and 16 months for the Second wine, the Chevalier de Lascombes, in oak barrels of which 70-80% is new wood for the grand vin.
The Château Lascombes produces wines that are concentrated and imbued with elegance, balance, and unquestionable pleasure.
