Description

The 2010 Lynch-Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with smoke, graphite and spring flowers. It is a massive Lynch Bages, full-bodied and very 1989-ish, with notable power, loads of tannin, and extraordinary concentration and precision. This is not a Lynch Bages to drink in its exuberant youth, but one to hold on to for 5-6 years and drink over the following three decades.

One of the most forgotten in the 1855 classification, Château Lynch-Bages takes its revenge each year when the many tasters see its cuvées well beyond its classification of … Fifth Grand Cru Classé! Perched on the gravel of the Bages plateau, overlooking the small village of Pauillac, the Lynch-Bages vines produce very ripe Cabernets, recognizable by their deep, inky black color. On the palate, the fatness, richness and aromas of jammy black fruits are reminiscent of the best Californian wines. Finally Lynch-Bages remains among the wines of Pauillac a guarantee of power, quality, but above all pleasure.
