Description :

This Lynch Bages 2005 displays very beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry and dark chocolate, with a hint of coffee. Full-bodied, with a tightly wound palate of ripe tannins. Rich, broad and ripe but impressively young, offering flavors of dark berries, chocolate, spices and smoke enlivened by firm acidity. Long and caressing

Château Lynch Bages

Château Lynch Bages Grand Cru Classé Pauillac  

Today the vineyards total 90 hectares situated on the Bages plateau near the village of Bages itself, just southwest of Pauillac; they have a typical constitution of gravel over a layer of marl, chalk and sand, and are planted with predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (73%), with 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

The average age of the vines is about 35 years and they are planted at a density of 9 000 vines/ha. The fruit is harvested manually, then destemmed and crushed before fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel.

The grand vin here is Chateau Lynch-Bages, of which there are typically 25 000 cases per annum. The nearby Chateau Haut Bages Averous has, since 1978, been used as the second label for Lynch-Bages (10 000 cases per annum). There is also a 4.5 ha plot of white vines, comprising 40% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Muscadelle which is used for the AC Bordeaux Blanc : Blanc de Lynch-Bages (3 000 cases per annum).

Although classified as a fifth growth, Lynch-Bages is one of those properties which illustrates the single most important failing of this classification; it is outdated and in desperate need of review if it is to really be anything other than a historical curiosity. That, of course, will never happen, but it hardly matters. Those in the know recognise that Chateau Lynch-Bages, often produces wine worthy of a higher classification, no matter what the label says.

Notes de dégustation

Wine Spectator : 93 points
"Displays very beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry and dark chocolate, with a hint of coffee. Full-bodied, with a tightly wound palate of ripe tannins. Long and caressing. Best after 2015." (Mar 2008)

Robert Parker : 91 points
"This outstanding effort is slightly lighter, more streamlined and delicate than followers of Lynch Bages have come to expect after such great vintages as 1982, 1989, 1990, 1996, and 2000. A deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a classic Medoc nose of tapenade, roasted herbs, licorice, cedar, black currants, and damp earth. Medium-bodied with moderate tannin, sweet fruit, and surprising softness as well as forwardness for a 2005 northern Medoc, it can be drunk now and over the next 20+ years." (Apr 2008)

Stephen Tanzer : 91 points
"Bright ruby-red. Expressive, classic aromas of currant, mocha, smoke and camphor. Rich, broad and ripe but impressively young, offering flavors of dark berries, chocolate, spices and smoke enlivened by firm acidity. This coats the palate nicely on the long finish, with tannins that are riper and sweeter than those of the 2006." (Jun 2008)

Bettane et Desseauve : 16/20
"On admirera le velouté de texture habituel au cru et sa suavité mais, au nez comme en bouche, le fût neuf ne semble pas équilibré à la texture, et le côté très affirmatif de l’ensemble peut sembler moins élégant qu’on ne le voudrait." (2009)
