Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The nose shows amazing aromas of mint, spices and currant, with underlying licorice and tar. Full-bodied, with amazing fruit and a long, long finish. Powerful. Blockbuster, but balanced. So structured. Lynch has not made a wine like this since perhaps 1989 or 1982. Better than Wine of the Year 1985 Lynch." -J.S.Wine Spectator. "Dense purple red, concentrated Cabernet cassis plus rich spiciness, big volume on the palate, expressive elegance over the natural vigour, lifted and long. Drink 2015-30." (18 points) Decanter

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

A dense, immense, solidly powerful wine. The ripest fruit overflows, paralleling the dark, solid tannins. As so often, Lynch-Bages is a blockbuster, dark and concentrated, with immense aging potential.

Tight and backward, this has dense, almost chewy layers of fig, currant and plum cake behind a very solid wall of cedar, roasted vanilla and charcoal notes. There’s serious grip on the finish, with an iron edge that won’t quit. Best from 2015 through 2035.

Ripe and focused, with nicely wound verbena, salted butter and green almond notes, backed by a vibrant finish that should unwind with brief cellaring. Drink now through 2013. 2,000 cases made.

75% Cabernet Sauvignon 18% Merlot 4% Cabernet franc and 2% Petit Verdot comprise the final blend that was aged in 70% new oak. Talk about dark! Dark purple almost black in color with slight hues. Bold flavors of red and black fruits with plum smoked meats and oak are mixed with vanilla and milk chocolate. This is a powerful wine but showing huge tannins high toned acidity and great purity of fruit. All things considered this Lynch Bages needs time. You must be patient to truly see the tru
