From the 17th century to the present day, ten generations of owners have followed one another and left their mark on the history of Château Lascombes. A destiny marked by colorful characters who have all worked for the excellence of the wines of Château Lascombes.
The Château Lascombes vineyard covers 120 hectares of vines in the Margaux appellation, as well as 10 hectares in the Haut-Médoc appellation. It is to this day one of the largest vineyards of the Crus Classés of 1855.
The Château Lascombes vineyard occupies the most sought-after plots of Margaux. Château Lascombes benefits from a variety of soils original for the appellation. The vineyard is divided into three distinct groups, of roughly equivalent surface area: a gravelly croup, which bears the Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdots, clayey gravel where Merlots and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted, and finally clay-limestone plots where the Merlot expresses himself perfectly; moreover, this grape variety dominates the grape variety of the vineyard for half, an originality compared to other Margaux vintages.
