Since then, several generations of Lascombes have succeeded one another, each contributing to the property's reputation.
The Château Lascombes was thus crowned Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855, during the famous official classification for the Paris Universal Exhibition. Having belonged to a French mutual insurance company since 2011, Château passed into the hands of the American Lawrence family in November 2022. Owners of a Domaine in Napa Valley, their aim is to continue the quest for perfection for this iconic Médoc cru.
The vineyard is located on clay gravel and clay-limestone soils, and reaches a size of 130 hectares of vines including 50% 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 vin, Chevalier de Lascombes, in oak barrels, of which 70-80% is new wood for the grand vin.
The Château Lascombes produces concentrated wines imbued with elegance, balance and undeniable pleasure.
