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

($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

Extremely well done. Dark, with lots of vanilla, strawberry, cherry and currant aromas. Full-bodied, with big, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2007.

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.

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 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.

There were two bottles of this wine tasted, one of my own and one from another person’s cellar. Although both were outstanding, one was much more evolved and displayed a slight dirtiness, but it was still impressive. The other displayed beautiful creme de cassis, and cedar in a surprisingly full-bodied and evolved style that could be drunk now. I originally predicted 2008–2025 for the window of full maturity, and that looks accurate, as this wine, which exhibits a little amber and loads of glycerin, is probably the biggest, richest Lynch Bages produced after the 1995 and before the 2005. Succulent, with lots of juicy black fruit and silky tannin, this is a beauty that can be drunk now or cellared for another 15–20 years.

Clean and sleek, with tobacco, berry and plum character, medium body and a silky, fresh finish. Firm and balanced Lynch. Best after 2007.
