Grand Cru Classé en 1855
With one hundred thirty hectares of vines (including one hundred twenty in the Margaux appellation and ten in the Haut- Médoc appellation) Château Lascombes is one of the largest estates in the Médoc.

Included among the second growths in the 1855 classification, the estate has a prestigious history going back to Chevalier de Lascombes, born in 1625. The terroir consists of forty of the finest plots in the Margaux appellation.

The best traditional and modern techniques are used in the vineyard and cellar to produce powerful, concentrated, fruity, and elegant wine. The fact that the various plots are widely scattered gives Lascombes remarkable complexity, balance, and ageing potential.

A new era began in 2001 with the appointment of Dominique Befve as manager. Since then, the cellars and vineyard have been entirely restructured in order to produce wine worthy of Lascombes’ classification and appellation.

The estate has been owned by the MACSF (Mutuelle d’Assurance du Corps de Santé Français) insurance company since 2011, and continues to be managed by Dominique Befve.
