Château Lynch Bages Pauillac Very Lightly Nicked Label 2005
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.

Velvet in a glass. Exquisitely rich, opulent, elegant and really delicious. Magnificent wine! - WS Grand Tour 2011
External Reviews for Château Lynch Bages Pauillac Very Lightly Nicked Label
Though it does not possess the weight, mass, or volume of the 1996, the 1995 is still a beautiful wine with a more evolved personality, lower acidity, but nowhere near the concentration of its younger sibling. The wine exhibits abundant quantities of earthy, smoke and tobacco-tinged, black currant fruit, rich, concentrated, medium to full-bodied flavors and moderate tannin in the long finish. It is successful, but nowhere near full maturity. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.
Der LYNCH-BAGES ist ein reicher, kräftiger und voller Wein, was er in erster Li-nie seinem hohen Cabernet Sauvignon Anteil, den neuen Eichenfässern und einer minimalen Filtrierung zu verdanken hat. Er hat eine tiefe, dunkle und granatrote Farbe. Sein süsses, fruchtiges Aroma ruft Erinnerungen an reife Trauben wach. Ein grosser Wein mit gutem Extrakt bei dem niemand mehr ernsthaft bestreiten würde, dass er den Rang eines Deuxième Cru verdient hätte.
(Barrel tasting) Currant, blackberry, cherry and hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with silky and refined tannins and a fresh finish. This is racy and pretty. Very refined. Very structured.
As one might suspect, the dense purple-hued 2005 is still tannic, firm and young, with concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit, beautiful ripeness, a full-bodied mouthfeel and undeniable youthfulness. Tasting like a 2ndash;3 year old wine rather one that has passed its sixth birthday. It is potentially one of the longest lived Lynch Bages since the remarkable 1989 and 2000. Anticipated maturity: 2017ndash;2030+.
Much better than I remember. Complex aromas of currants, berries and mint. Full-bodied, very tannic, but velvety and caressing. Keeps improving. Best after 2002.
Deep, dark ruby with intense aromas of mint, berries and currants. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a delicious ripe fruit and lead pencil aftertaste. Very fine indeed. Typically outstanding for Lynch-Bages.
