Not quite ready to bite the bullet and purchase a Lafite, Latour, or Margeaux? This is the wine for you. This Bordeaux has all the attributes of the big boys but you won't have to take out a second mortgage. Very clean taste, classic Bordeaux fruits, and a prolonged finish make this a fantastic "value"

...Plum, redcurrant, cedar, cigar box and tobacco on the evolving nose. Pliant and sweet, with moderate depth and dimension. Cant match the later vintages for verve or inner-mouth complexity. Finishes with dusty tannins and good length. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Lynch Bages 750ml

This dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 is a modern day clone of this estate s wonderful 1962. The 1999 reveals forward open-knit notes of creme de cassis and earth. It is fleshy medium to full-bodied and succulent with supple tannin excellent balance as well as a long pure ripe finish. This seductive effort will drink well for 12-15 years possibly longer.

Berry and tobacco aromas with hints of spice. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Slightly one-dimensional but a good wine. Not a great Lynch but very good... Wine Spectator.
