Editorial Reviews for Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac
Opened on a particularly hot day after the restaurants ac had failed. Starts out very herbaceous, cedary and lighter weight. Slowly builds in depth and weight revealing a good core of curranty fruit to counter the herbal elements but remains solidly mid weight if wonderfully fresh with notes of cut leather and light tobacco. In this mag very feminine and still young.
What a terrific wine. With very little breathing the nose told one that this was going to be exceptional and there was no disappointment in the mouth. Perfect balance, soft tanins and a huge finish made this wine one of the better experiences of late.
Parker seemed to think this is about to decline. Drank a bottle January 3, 2010. Decanted and started drinking right away. took a break for 2 hours with wine in a glass. It did open up more to a wonderful boquet. This was a 750 ml. bottle kept in my cellar since purchased from Sherry Lehmann in 88. I expect well kept bottles will still have 5 years or more before decline.
External Reviews for Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac
Our wine of the year in 1988 and still well worth it. The first bottle was slightly cheesy but the second one was superb, showing outstanding ripe berry, cherry and currant flavors and layers of silky fine tannins. Sexy and exciting. Drink now or hol... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1985 Lynch Bages 750ml
Full red-ruby. Great nose combines plum syrup leather truffle spices and a faint herbaceous element. Juicy and very intensely flavored; not particularly complex but offers compelling inner-mouth perfume all the same. Finishes very long and bright with lovely penetration and horizontal tannins. This wine had the misfortune of following the Lafite and Latour flights in the tasting; while it lacks the class of the first growths it boasts sneaky intensity. Drink now through 2015. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
The 1985 has been totally disarming, seductive, and sexy since birth. Its corpulence, medium to full-bodied personality, low acidity, attractive silkiness, and copious quantities of herb-tinged cassis fruit have always made this wine a winner.
