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. 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

This is downright refined when contrasted against the Gruaud. There’s a touch of leather and a hint of barnyard but the impression here is one of sweeter fruit, with a hint of gingerbread, and lovely dusty, smoky mineral top notes with emerging herbal undertones. In the palate this is still young and very finely balanced. It’s a much more focused wine than the Gruaud, perhaps a little too focused but the fruit, black raspberry, powers through on the backend and onto the finish. As good as this is it lacks some dimension. It’s a linear wine, firmly at peak and delicious but this is not has not developed a seductive texture or any particular complexity. A solid wine 91pts.

Still very vibrant. Cassis, anise, a bit of funk, tangy spiciness on the back side; moderate, somewhat peppery finish; subdued oak, silky smooth tannins, good fruitiness. While this shows a definite maturity, I would never have guessed it was 29 years old - still going strong.
