In nature volcanoes are imminently dangerous, yet utterly alluring. In wine, Margaux is not much different. This dark, Left-Bank beauty from Château Lascombes, comes in at 96 points with densely packed tannins, intimidating concentration and elegant violet undertones. Hold this heavy if you can, otherwise pop the cork and take cover.
Immediate depth to the aromas of dark cherries, plums and blackberries with subtly spicy and cedary oak amid stony, minerally accents. The palate has immense depth and presence without relying on brute force. This is all about charm and fluidity. Superb wine.
