The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with smoke, graphite and spring flowers. It is a massive Lynch Bages, full-bodied and very 1989-ish, with notable power, loads of tannin, and extraordinary concentration and precision. This is not a Lynch Bages to drink in its exuberant youth, but one to hold on to for 5–6 years and drink over the following three decades.

Roasted cedar, tobacco and bay leaf notes start off this structured but lively bottling, with intense currant, blackberry and black cherry flavors at the core. The iron-laced grip and pleasantly austere plum pit and licorice snap accents fill in on the tar-tinged finish. Great range, character and typicity. If you ever need to explain Pauillac to someone, give them this. Best from 2018 through 2037.

The 2010 blew me away on each occasion I tasted it during my two week sojourn in Bordeaux. Tannic and concentrated, this huge Pauillac boasts an inky/purple color as well as impressive notes of creme de cassis, smoke, graphite and spring flowers. Thi... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

79% Cabernet Sauvignon 18% Merlot 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Franc made up the blend for 2010. Visually the wine sports a deep ruby color. It s big fat and concentrated sweet ripe blackberries and cassis. This is a masculine powerful structured vintage for Lynch Bages. The tannins are ripe but this wine will require serious aging before becoming civilized. The wine ends with a blast of ripe chewy cabernet fruit. Yields were close to 10% less across the board than in 2009 at 50 hectoliters per hectare. Jeff Leve.

This displays a solid core of cassis raspberry and blackberry coulis notes framed by a rather polished structure and lined with lightly toasted apple wood and anise notes. Offers good definition with a violet note chiming in on the finish. A sleek elegant Pauillac that relies more on purity than muscle. Best from 2014 through 2023. -JM Wine Spectator.

A juicy wine with strawberry and blueberry character. It s full-bodied with velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Lots of ripe fruit. Excellent second wine of Lynch-Bages. Better in 2015. James Suckling.

Winemaker's Notes:

In 2010, for only the second vintage ever, Chateau Lynch Bages has produced a third wine: Pauillac de Lynch-Bages. Produced from the Chateau's younger vines and treated with the same care as the estate's first and second wines, this wine expresses the best of the historic 2010 vintage. A fresh and elegant wine with notes of red fruit, spice, wood and a silky well-rounded mouthfeel to finish it off. The lighter structure makes this wine an excellent pairing with many dishes and a pleasure to enjoy right away. "Pauillac will be appreciated by wine lovers and Lynch-Bages connoisseurs alike." – Jean-Charles Cazes, Proprietor
