2003 Chateau Lascombes Margaux
This dark purple wine opens with aromas of blackberry and cassis. In the mouth, layers of ripe fruit, truffle, vanilla, coffee and thyme play across the tongue. Intense with a lush mouthfeel, it's been called "a tour de force in winemaking" and "one of the stars of the vintage." While it pairs well with a hearty steak dinner, it's equally enjoyable sipped on its own and would be a perfect choice to enjoy in front of a crackling fire on a cold winter's night.
This wine retails for approx. $60.
Bottom Line: Delicious wine that lives up to its hype.
