Château Lascbomes in Margaux

Château Lascombes has a rich history that dates back to the 17th century when it was owned by the Durfort de Duras family. In the 18th century, the property was acquired by the Lascombes family, who gave the estate its current name. Throughout the years, Chateau Lascombes has undergone significant changes in ownership and management. In the mid-19th century, the property was acquired by the English merchant, Alexander Lawton, who expanded the vineyards and modernized the winemaking facilities. In the 1950s, the estate was purchased by the Tari family, who continued to invest in the property and improve its quality. In 2001, Chateau Lascombes was sold to the American investment firm, Colony Capital, who implemented further upgrades and modernizations.

Today, Chateau Lascombes is a 117-hectare estate with 50 hectares of vineyards. The vineyards are planted with a blend of grape varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, and are situated on well-drained gravelly soils that are ideal for producing high-quality wines. The winemaking process at Chateau Lascombes is characterized by a combination of traditional and modern techniques, with a focus on producing wines that are rich, complex, and expressive of their terroir.
