Description

Chateau Lascombes is a wine estate in the Margaux appellation, it was ranked a second growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. The vineyard is situated in the northwest of the appellation, neighboring chateaux Labegorce, Perriere and La Gurgue. It covers 112 hectares (275 acres) in Margaux with a parcel of 6 ha (15 acres) in the Haut-Medoc appellation. The vineyard has three distinct parts of roughly equal size; a gravelly mound on which Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot are planted, a clay-gravel area of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and clay-limestone plots better suited to Merlot. Unusually for Margaux, Merlot accounts for around 50 percent of plantings with Cabernet Sauvignon playing second fiddle along with a small amount of Petit Verdot. Despite this, the grand vin tends to feature around 55 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. Around 300,000 bottles of Chateau Lascombes are produced per year, with around half as much of the second wine Chevalier de Lascombes, which is blended from batches of wine not selected for the top wine. Around 20,000 bottles of Haut-Medoc de Lascombes are produced from the vines outside of Margaux. In the 1980s and 1990s another second wine, Chateau Segonnes, was made from specific plots within the estate.
