Lynch Bages Bordeaux Blend Wine 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"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)*

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

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.
