Thanks @Shawn R letting me know K&L had some, great looking cork for 10 years old,
This one is for you @Ron R , sorry no twist off.
Its the Alexis Cuvee, so I’m assuming its not 100% Merlot. not sure what the rest of the blend is, — 7 months ago

Full flavored and strong. A meaty start with complex flavors of currant and strawberry. Some tannin and a dry finish. — 7 months ago
Chateau Lascombes has been producing fine wine on the same location for about 300 years or so. In the 1855 Classification it was ranked as one of the 15 “Second Growths” of Bordeaux, which meant it was one of the 20 best vineyards in France and therefore - at least according to the French - the world. It’s had its ups and downs over the years but has been a top performer in most rankings for the last 30 years or so. At one point in the 1970’s I believe it was owned by one of the worlds best known wine critics, Alexis Lichine (with financial backing from David Rockefeller). I think it was bought from them in the late 1990’s or so.
Known for its smooth flavors and never overly tannic, I would bet it tasted great!
Parker gave this one a “94” when he tasted it and said to drink it between 2014 and 2020. In Honor of Nick! — 8 days ago
A Pinot that makes you stop and pay attention. Bold Strawberry bursts. Effervescent element on the palette. A bit young, but yeah.... — 5 months ago
2012, red fruit, very bright flavors, not a lot of depth or complexity, but still young and very enjoyable. Feminine, and quite attractive. Long finish, well balances. WBA. — 7 months ago
