About Chateau Lynch Bages
Classifications often fail to reflect the current state of a chateau, and that's certainly the case for this Pauillac Fifth Growth. Chateau Lynch-Bages makes rich, powerful, full-bodied wines capable of long life.
87-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
Opaque purple-ruby. Lead pencil, coffee, black pepper and blackberry on the nose. Enters sweet and suave, then turns lean and a bit dry in the middle, showing only moderate concentration to its red cherry and peppery flavors. Picks up some flesh and volume at the back, finishing good persistence, smooth tannins and a lingering note of cassis. A charming Lynch-Bages that’s more forward than usual and will probably be best drunk over the near to medium term.
