History of Chateau Lascombes
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. 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. The wines of Château Lascombes are aged in barrels for eighteen to twenty months.
Using Oxoline barrel racks, the estate has adopted highly dependable technology based on simple principles. While from the outside the winery conforms closely to the architecture of the local region, the interior offers a more contemporary style, particularly in the first-year cellar, where the lighting’s fluorescent, blue halo never fails to catch the attention of visitors. In each of the cellars, traditional materials combine to offer an image of classicism, strength and sobriety.
