Château Lynch-bages:
Château Lynch-Bages was owned by the Lynch family for three quarters of a century. They descended from John Lynch, a young Irishman from Galway who was chased out of his country in 1691. In the 18th century, Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch, mayor of Bordeaux, inherited the estate and handed over management to his brother Michel Lynch, who was also mayor of Pauillac during the French Revolution. ...

Château Lynch-Bages was owned by the Lynch family for three quarters of a century. They descended from John Lynch, a young Irishman from Galway who was chased out of his country in 1691. In the 18th century, Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch, mayor of Bordeaux, inherited the estate and handed over management to his brother Michel Lynch, who was also mayor of Pauillac during the French Revolution. Jean-Charles Cazes, highly respected in the Médoc for his experience in viticul- ture and winemaking, bought the property in 1934. With his son André, he devoted all his energy to Lynch-Bages for more than 35 years. In 1974, his grand-son Jean-Michel Cazes set about restructuring and managing the estate and recently, in 2006, handed over the running of the property to his son Jean-Charles. Read less

The '94 is an excellent wine which reveals a healthy, saturated, dark, ruby/purple color, chocolate, cedar and black currant and fruitcake-like aromas, and medium to full body.

The 1995 is not quite as outstanding as the massive, backward 1989 or luscious, corpulent 1990, but it looks to be a modern day version of the delicious, hedonistic 1985. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2017.

Gorgeous. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and nuances of violet, berry, toasted oak and mineral. Long, caressing finish. Better in 1999.

The Cazes family has polished the rustic charms of the Lynch-Bages to the point that this fifth growth performs at the level of a top second in the best vintages. But in a more challenging vintage like '94, the terroir just can't quite keep up. Here, Cinderella is back from the ball, and the polish has fallen away to reveal a more straightforward beauty. This is a comfortable, country-style Pauillac, its fruit inky with red currant and gamy flavors. The tannins are forceful, but well integrated with the potent fruit. It's a bloody wine for steak tartare.

Lynch-Bages has always had an old-style Bordeaux charm. Even now, dressed as it is in the trappings of a super-second, the wine shows its more humble graces. The surface is sleek, the texture soft as velvet, the fruit fleshy and giving an earthy spice. A hint of red fruit syrup shows the ripeness of the vintage. Ten years out, the wine will be as much at home on a table at Cordeillon-Bages as on a picnic in the Hebrides.

In '95, the sheer power of Lynch-Bages is incredible. It's impacted with flavor, dark, dense, yet vibrant. The extract built into the wine suppresses so much of the flavor that it only begins to emerge long into the finish, crawling out from under the tannins like a creature from the deep. A monster, but one who's forgiving, exuberant and easy-going. A remarkable achievement from Jean-Michel Cazes and Daniel Llose, there is no other fifth growth like Lynch-Bages - not a fourth, nor a third. It may not be as classy as some of the seconds, but it holds much interest.

($95-$110) Good full red-ruby. Rich, mellow aromas of currant, plum, mocha and oak. Dense, seamless and deep, with burnished plum and tobacco flavors enlivened by very good vinosity. Lush, suave wine, finishing with sneaky length. 92 points Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Lynch Bages 750ml
