Expert Reviews

88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(5.4 g/l total acidity; 13.1% alcohol):  Deep ruby-red with a hint of amber at the rim.  Aromas of blackcurrant, coffee, green bell pepper and leathery dried herbs.  Rich, round and peppery in the mouth, with similar flavors to the aromas and a long, clean finish.  Not the last word in complexity but solidly made, with a soft, ripe texture typical of the vintage and of Lynch-Bages.  Better in the mouth than on the nose today, but lacks the complexity for an outstanding score.
