The vineyard is situated in the northwest of the appellation, neighboring chateaux Margaux ,La Gurgue and Perriere. It covers 112 hectares (275 acres) in Margaux. The vineyard has three distinct parts of roughly equal size; a gravelly mound on which Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot are planted, a clay-gravel area of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and clay-limestone plots better suited to Merlot. Unusually for Margaux, Merlot accounts for around 50 percent of plantings with Cabernet Sauvignon playing second fiddle along with a small amount of Petit Verdot. Despite this, the grand vin tends to feature around 55 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. Less than 50,000 bottles of Chateau Lascombes Grand Crue are produced per year. Around 20,000 bottles of Haut-Medoc de Lascombes are produced from the vines outside of Margaux. It actually closely resembles the Grand Vin in this vintage with having, obviously, the same power or aging capacity.
