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.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
(5.6 g/l total acidity; 13% alcohol): Medium red with some brick at the rim. Deep but reticent aromas of redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice and tar; improved noticeably with aeration, picking up an aromatic floral quality. Juicy, round and suave, with good definition and a seamless texture to its redcurrant and soil flavors. The finish features sneaky complexity and ripe tannins, but not the grip or intensity of the best vintages of Lynch-Bages.
