RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
There's something I always really like about Lynch-Bages and I didn't taste this blind, so I automatically give it high points. This is really young and is not ready to drink. Quite austere right now. Some very dark fruit and leather on the nose. Black cherry on palate, but that's about it. Long, juicy finish with a touch of bitterness.

External Reviews for Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
Extremely well done. Dark, with lots of vanilla, strawberry, cherry and currant aromas. Full-bodied, with big, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2007.
This austere, medium-weight Lynch Bages reveals notes of new saddle leather, tobacco, olives, and black fruits. Although not a big, concentrated Pauillac, it is graceful, elegant, with character and style. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016.
A marvelous bottle of Lynch - better than the 1990 and just a notch below the 1989 in quality. Wondrous aromas of mint, berry and black currant follow through to the palate. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful. Best after 2003.
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.
One of the big surprises is how delicious this wine has turned out. It is a beautiful, classic claret. Dark ruby-colored with purple hues, it reveals aromas of dried herbs, smoke, leather, grilled meats, and copious black cherry and currant fruit. Medium-bodied, powerful, rich, and surprisingly evolved, this vintage has hit its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for another 10-12 years.
It's French, it's expensive, it's not ready to drink, it's in short supply, like so many of Bordeaux's 2000s, it is the best wine to come from this estate in a decade, and chances are, by the time the current aversion to "buying French" wanes, wines like this will be gone. I'm not sure how I'm going to be feeling about the French in 15 years, but I have a pretty good idea of what I'll think of this wine.
(Barrel tasting) Incredible aromas of violets and currants. Full-bodied and very tannic, but loads of ripe fruit and a superlong finish. What can I say? This is amazing. If you love Lynch, buy this.
Berry Bros & Rudd review: This exceptional chateau continues to make a mockery of its 5th Growth status,<br/>and in 2003 has re-emphasised just how good the Left Bank wines are. Huge wafts<br/>of muscular, minty, cassis-laden Cabernet Sauvignon on the nose introduce a<br/>powerful structured palate with savoury hints of liquorice. This is<br/>unquestionably Lynch-Bages, and a great one at that. Displaying even more<br/>elegance than other recent vintages, this Cabernet-dominated wine (83%) will<br/>gain even more weight in barrel and looks likely to prove absolutely stunning<br/>with a bit of patience. Drink 2012-2030.
