Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

The fleshy, mouth-filling flavours of this wine, from the exceptional 1996vintage, leads to great finesse on the finish. With its voluptuous cassis fruitit is a blockbuster to enjoy now but will improve with age. Pauillac at itsbest.

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

Deep, dark, garnet-red color. Sweet, fruity aroma with warmth and depth. Very rich on the palate, with a plush, compact texture. A big wine with substantial extract. Robert Parker 94, Wine Spectator 92.

This is much more open than the 1995. Offers aromas and flavors of currant, mint and spices. Full-bodied, soft and velvety, with a fruit finish.

...intense aromas of mint, berries and currants. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a delicious ripe fruit and lead-pencil aftertaste. Very fine indeed... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Lynch Bages 1500ml
