Editorial Reviews for Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
This just smells classy with layers of cool reserved earth, spice, slightly jammy black currant, tobacco, and green herb notes. On entry this is a bit spicy and even shows a bit of oystershell saltiness that yields to precise, transparent black currant and black olive fruit. the tannins are melting away here giving this a rather broad feel but the acidity remains firm and drives the pencil lead and stalk herb finish on and on. At peak and holding for another 5-8 years. 92pts
Aromas are a little funky complete with cedar, a prevalent smokiness, dried earth, dried cherry fruit and black raspberries. Palate is powerful and acidic with dark fruit components, dried tea leaves and a smokiness becoming more earthy as the flavors linger. interesting complexity of the flavors, unique with each taste
Black olive, sweet black fruit aromas. Juicy black fruit flavors, good well balanced acidity, dark chocolate and a long complex finish.
Salty wet wool nose. Dry cold cedar and oak with some pencil shavings. Dry medicinal finish.
Briny, oysterish nose, with some gravel and tobacco flavors there too. Very smokey throughout, round and well integrated. Very nice.
Four and a half glasses
