Decanter   90

This is just a little bit off the pace, yet it's a wine that I really enjoy, and you can see the careful construction through the palate. The smoked cedar oak is there, and the redcurrant and raspberry fruits are textured, layered with attractive damsons. It's just not delivering on the excitement that this estate has been so adept at achieving in recent vintages.

James Suckling   90-91

Tight and firm with dark-berry and chocolate character. Some mahogany, too. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. But should fill out with elevage. Shows potential.

Wine Advocate   92-95

The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lascombes gives up lovely scents of roses and lavender over a core of kirsch, crushed black plums and black raspberries with a waft of cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with a rock-solid frame of firm, ripe, grainy tannins, it has a great core of muscular fruit and lingering spicy notes on the finish.

Vinous   89-91

The 2017 Lascombes feels a little smudged on the nose compared to its peers, though I find it less decadent and ostentatious than other recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, dense black fruit, quite spicy in style but the finish feels focused and with more tension and energy than I expected. Not bad at all.
