From the 17th century to the modern-day, ten generations of owners have succeeded each other and left their stamp upon the history of Château Lascombes. A destiny paved along its way with colourful characters, who all contributed to the excellence of the wines of Château Lascombes. The Château Lascombes vineyard covers 120 hectares (296 acres) in the Margaux appellation, as well as 10 hectares (24 acres) in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Today, it is one of the largest vineyards among the classified growths of 1855.
IN THE HEART OF MARGAUX
The Château Lascombes vineyard is made up of the most sought-after plots in Margaux, composed of a unique mix of soil-types for this appellation. The vineyard is divided into three distinct blocks of roughly the same surface area: a gravelly outcrop planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, a block of clay-gravel made up of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and finally clay-limestone plots, where the Merlot finds its optimal expression. Interestingly, Merlot is the predominant variety in the vineyard’s grape composition, making up 50% of the total, a unique feature in the Margaux appellation.
