...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

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.

In the flight of young wines, with all the vintages of the nineties represented, this wine stood out for its absolute purity of creme de cassis, ripe fruit, medium to full body, high tannin, wonderful sweetness, massive richness on the mid-palate, and abundant power, density, and ripeness. It is clearly the finest Lynch Bages since the 1989 and 1990. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025.

...Ripe aromas of currant tobacco leather smoke and game. Sweetly penetrating currant and cherry flavors in the mouth; rich and nicely balanced with a silky texture... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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.
