    Château Lascombes owes its name to its first owner, Chevalier Antoine de Lascombes (born in 1625). Lascombes' vineyard is one of the Médoc's largest, and consists of 40 plots scattered all over the appellation. The soil is made up of deep, fine gravel. Much appreciated on the Anglophone market, 40% of Château Lascombes' wines are sold in the United States, where they serve as ambassadors for French wine.
