External Reviews for Château Lynch Bages Pauillac Very Lightly Nicked Label
(Barrel tasting) A wine that seems to revel in richness. The tannins are certainly structured, but the fruit is just bursting out. The dryness and the acidity, though, promise that the fruit will be tamed and the wine will age well.
Overlooking the Gironde estuary at the entrance to Pauillac, the vines of Lynch-Bages are located on the Bages plateau, on one of the finest gravelly rises in the appellation. The estate once belonged to the famous Lynch family, of Irish origin, and was acquired by Jean-Charles Cazes in 1934. His grandson, Jean-Michel Cazes, restructured the estate in 1974, adding state-of-the-art winemaking equipment, while keeping the former wooden vats as a reminder of the 19th century. The grapes are all hand picked and then carefully sorted before crushing. A very strict selection is made prior to blending and the wine is traditionally aged in oak barrels before bottling
"Chateau Lynch Bages Pauillac Ce 2005 has a deep ruby/purple hue which is accompanied by a classic Medoc nose of tapenade
Ch. Lynch-Bages continues to deliver quality in this spectacular 2005 vintage. This has a mildly smoky nose with dense tannins and currants. Great potential for the cellar.
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. 35,000 cases made. JS
Clean and sleek, with tobacco, berry and plum character, medium body and a silky, fresh finish. Firm and balanced Lynch. Best after 2007.
Berry Bros & Rudd review: Few people realise that this is the second wine of Ch. Lynch-Bages, and it<br/>certainly doesn't taste like it here! Gentle cedar hints enhance the rich<br/>summer pudding flavours while roasted coffee and firm tannins and acidity add a<br/>serious edge. The pure yet beguiling nose of spicy raspberries tops things off<br/>beautifully. You can argue about how good the Grand Vin is till the cows come<br/>home but there is no doubt that this wonderful wine is the best Haut-Bages<br/>Averous ever.
