Lynch Bages Premier 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This is as good as Pavillon Blanc de Ch Margaux and guess what's best?- it is less than half the price!

Château Lynch-bages:
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.

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

This was bought for me as a present on the strength of a bottle we had which was also a Sauvignon Blanc/Semiilon combination and this was even better. The Semillon added that sweet citrus quality but the Sauvignon Blanc was so so refreshing and smooth. Combined it quenches your thirst beautifully only for wanting more to quench your thirst soon after. But its so easy to drink, the bottle disappeared too quickly. Excellent wine.

Smoke, water and moss on the nose. Potent. Tobacco and black currant with a hint of floral and red fruits (cherry and raspberry). Potent tannins and lots of promise.

This wine played possum over a sampling in the decanter for several hours. Closed and tight for the first few hours, it was unassuming and subtle with high level of tannins, oak, and acidity. It finally opened up after about 6 hours or air, and was brilliant, with red fruits with a touch of vanilla, a great mid palate, and long finish that made its exist with a bit of molasses and sweet tannins. This wine had some finesse as well. I wanted more but it was consumed by the time it started to show.

Still too closed in the bouquet. Will try to taste the wine again in 2-3 years from now.

Overlooking the Gironde estuary at the entrance to Pauillac, the vines of Lynch-Bages are located on the Bages plateau, on one of the finest gravelly rises in the appellation. The estate once belonged to the famous Lynch family, of Irish origin, and was acquired by Jean-Charles Cazes in 1934. His grandson, Jean-Michel Cazes, restructured the estate in 1974, adding state-of-the-art winemaking equipment, while keeping the former wooden vats as a reminder of the 19th century. The grapes are all hand picked and then carefully sorted before crushing. A very strict selection is made prior to blending and the wine is traditionally aged in oak barrels before bottling

From a clay and gravel plateau three miles east of Lynch-Bages, this is a blend of sauvignon blanc, semillon and muscadelle planted in 1988. A hot July and a cool, dry August produced this substantial wine with freshness that keeps it sleek and cream... Wine & Spirits.

Sattes Purpur. Leicht animalische, dann rauchige Nase. Fleischig im Ansatz, mit einer gehörigen Portion runder, saftiger Tannine. Langes Finale. Ein fülliger, reicher Wein.
