Lynch Bages Bordeaux Blend Wine 2010
"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." *-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (96 Points)*

Editorial Reviews for Lynch Bages Bordeaux Blend Wine
Herbaceous with green tobacco on the tight, slightly hard, woody nose – tight on entry, focused with juicy, ripe tannins, bright acid, polished if a touch lean on the mid-palate, yet full of ripe fruit on the backend, needs some time but everything is here and in proportion (87-88)
This is finally showing signs of maturity. It remains a big wine with exceptional depth but also exceptional balance that gives this elegance and finesse that is rare to find. Rich notes of cigarbox, black currant, and wood spice greet the nose and the palate has lovely funk and herbal, chipotle hints that really frame the deep fruit. A very long lingering finish completes the picture. This is still youthful and is a classic in the making with a long life ahead of it. 2009-2030. 95pts
This is still so young with it's pencil lead, rubber tinged nose that offers up subtle notes of dried funghi and rich cassis extract. Big and powerful on entry with a closed, hollow midpalate that yields to a minerally finish that finishes with a lingering final of almost grapey cassis fruit. This is only the second bottle from a case bought on release. I've had more open bottles but these are ageing at a glacial pace. Absolutely pinpoint precision with the structure that offers up an airy elegance even with all this richness and power. 2012-2030
This just smells classy with layers of cool reserved earth, spice, slightly jammy black currant, tobacco, and green herb notes. On entry this is a bit spicy and even shows a bit of oystershell saltiness that yields to precise, transparent black currant and black olive fruit. the tannins are melting away here giving this a rather broad feel but the acidity remains firm and drives the pencil lead and stalk herb finish on and on. At peak and holding for another 5-8 years. 92pts
Classic Bordeaux nose that starts very herbal and earth but slowly opens to reveal lurking cassis and mulberry fruits with distinct clean tones of graphite and cedar. This has resolved so well, silky entry is really lovely. Just entering it's plateau this remains rich and packed with fruit that just has a touch of austerity on the palate. The dense core remains light on it's feet with lively acidity and a long very fine finish that recalls the aromatics on the nose. The fruit grows in the glass yet remains very precise with great cut and definition. Wonderful mature Bordeaux. 2008-2020
Opened on a particularly hot day after the restaurants ac had failed. Starts out very herbaceous, cedary and lighter weight. Slowly builds in depth and weight revealing a good core of curranty fruit to counter the herbal elements but remains solidly mid weight if wonderfully fresh with notes of cut leather and light tobacco. In this mag very feminine and still young.
This is downright refined when contrasted against the Gruaud. There’s a touch of leather and a hint of barnyard but the impression here is one of sweeter fruit, with a hint of gingerbread, and lovely dusty, smoky mineral top notes with emerging herbal undertones. In the palate this is still young and very finely balanced. It’s a much more focused wine than the Gruaud, perhaps a little too focused but the fruit, black raspberry, powers through on the backend and onto the finish. As good as this is it lacks some dimension. It’s a linear wine, firmly at peak and delicious but this is not has not developed a seductive texture or any particular complexity. A solid wine 91pts.
Lynch Bages bringt konstant gute Qualität, auch bei diesem Jahrgang: noch etwas krautig und wuchtig, wird aber sicher noch viel besser.
Two and a half glasses

A pretty and tangy Lynch with lemon and orange peel with hints of red fruits and hints of iron. Full to medium body with firm tannins. Bright finish. Chewy. Lively finish. James Suckling.
Cropped at 31hl/ha a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon 20% Merlot 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot Jean-Charles Cazes told me that it was one of the shortest harvests because of the low yields between 1 and 12 October. The bouquet is has a pure floral bouquet that is quite Margaux-like in style. It is well defined with touches of cr
A blend of 54% Sauvignon Blanc 28% Semillon and 18% Muscadelle raised 50% in new oak this has a fragrant bouquet with scents of apple peel dried apricot and a hints of white peach that is well defined. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity nicely integrated oak which then eases off the accelerator towards the finish. Tasted April 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
This is super-fresh and mineral with oyster shell and salt. Full body with dried lemons and hints of mango. Long and fresh. Crazy grapefruit. Tangy and energetic. James Suckling.
The wine is very dry layered tannins giving a major sense of structure. It will always have this dry dense character very firm solid and powerful. Wine Enthusiast.
Pure and racy delivering a core of violet cassis and cherry well-framed by a sleek iron-coated structure. Features a long taut focused finish. Shows the austerity of the vintage but this remains long and pure with fine cut.
A fruity wine for the vintage with dense tannins. Full body with impressive structure. Long finish. Generous and attractive. I like the balance and precision for the vintage. James Suckling.
