Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(4.6 g/l total acidity; 12.7% alcohol):  Dark red with a hint of garnet.  A floral element lifts the very ripe aromas of kirsch and spicecake.   Smooth, juicy, balanced and clean, with flavors of raspberry jam, graphite and tar exhibiting very good sweetness.  Lively, balanced acidity confers precision and cut to this easygoing midweight.  Finishes linear and long, with plenty of charm.

Seems to get a bit softer with some air
by Wilfried
TN Lynch Bages, Pauillac, Bordeaux, 1982 (single blind): Dark garnet, clear, high viscosity. Intense liquorice, some oak, bit of cress in the nose. Medium to plump body, dark fruit, good acidity, lasting tannins. Long aftertaste, velvety bit tartish dark berries fruit. Score: 50 + 4 for optic + 13 for bouquet + 18 for taste + 8 for overall = total score of 93.
