Expert Reviews

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(4.7 g/l total acidity; 13% alcohol):  Dark ruby-red with a garnet edge.  Initially inexpressive nose opens with aeration to reveal aromas of red fruits, flowers, tar and minerals.  Sweet on entry, with flavors of red cherry syrup, vanilla and milk chocolate, then develops a delicate animal nuance with air.  The long finish features persistent notes of tobacco and kirsch.  Typically seductive Lynch-Bages, and quite opulent in texture.

Decanted this wine with a Venturi and let is sit for 30 minutes. This wine sings with some air. Truly a great Bordeaux. 93 is low. 95+ in my opinion.

Tasted at a Bordeaux dinner in 2007, this wine was drinking perfectly. Absolutely delicious. Powerful yet refined.

This is a beauty. After opening a bottle of the 1990 Lynch Bages I wondered what is it that separates a first from a second growth. This wine had everything and in perfect harmony. Those who like complex large scale bordeaux should seek this one out. It is loaded with blackcurrant, cedar, and mineral with low acidity and just the right amount of backbone. It is beautiful now - what can I say? If you can afford it, buy it.
