Description :
This dense purple-colored Lynch Bage displays sweet notes of creme de cassis, tobacco leaf, licorice, and some cedar and graphite. The wine has plenty of structure a la 1995 and a backward, muscular personality, but beautiful fruit on the attack and alluring purity and a nicely textured mouth feel. The finish suggests cellaring 3-5 years

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is one of those properties which illustrates the single most important failing of this classification; it is outdated and in desperate need of review if it is to really be anything other than a historical curiosity.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

Robert Parker : 92 points
"1988 or 1995-ish in style, rather than 1996, which seems to be the vintage several 2006s recall, this dense purple-colored wine displays sweet notes of creme de cassis, tobacco leaf, licorice, and some cedar and graphite. The wine has plenty of structure a la 1995 and a backward, muscular personality, but beautiful fruit on the attack and alluring purity and a nicely textured mouth feel. The finish suggests cellaring for 3-5 years and drinking over the following two decades." (Feb 2009)

Wine Spectator : 93 points
"Blackberry, licorice and mint aromas lead to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and lots of blackberry and mineral fruit character. Shows outstanding concentration and balance. Best after 2014." (Mar 2009)

Stephen Tanzer : 90 points
"Deep ruby-red. Deeply pitched aromas of inky cassis, licorice, mocha and smoky, nutty oak. Fairly large-scaled and layered but dominated by its acid/tannin spine in the early going, displaying firm, coolish flavors of black plum, licorice and graphite. The lingering finish features substantial but ripe tannins. Give this at least a few years of cellaring before pulling the cork." (Jun 2008)

Bettane et Desseauve : 17/20
"Magnifique texture veloutée, tannin très puissant mais enrobé, grande personnalité ! Très beau vin." (2009)
