Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: I have drunk many bottles of this wine in many different locations, including<br/>bottles from my own cellar, and I continue to be amazed by how remarkably<br/>consistent it is. One of my favorite Lynch Bages, the 1990 is a more forward,<br/>fleshier, and sexier version of the brilliant 1989, and represents a poster<br/>bottle of what Lynch Bages is all about. A dense ruby/purple color is followed<br/>by a sumptuously sweet bouquet of roasted meats, herbs, sweet creme de cassis<br/>fruit, a massive level of glycerin, and silky ripe tannins. It is a hedonistic<br/>as well as intellectual turn-on. There is not a hard edge to be found in this<br/>delicious 1990, which should last for another 15-20 years in a cold cellar. I<br/>would rank the 1990 and 1989 as the two greatest Lynch Bages made in the last<br/>30 years. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Jun 09)

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.

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

Opulent aromas of berries and hints of eucalyptus and fresh herbs. Full-bodied and very juicy with big velvety tannins and a ripe long finish. Flavor plus. Nice now but better with age. This has always been superb... Wine Spectator.

I have drunk many bottles of this wine in many different locations (Cayman Islands, Shanghai, Bordeaux, Paris, and London), including bottles from my own cellar, and I continue to be amazed by how remarkably consistent it is. One of my favorite Lynch Bages, the 1990 is a more forward, fleshier, and sexier version of the brilliant 1989, and represents a poster bottle of what Lynch Bages is all about. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a sumptuously sweet bouquet of roasted meats, herbs, sweet creme de cassis fruit, a massive level of glycerin, and silky ripe tannins. It is a hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on. There is not a hard edge to be found in this delicious 1990, which should last for another 15-20 years in a cold cellar. I would rank the 1990 and 1989 as the two greatest Lynch Bages made in the last 30 years. Release price: ($350.00/case)
