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.
Fresh and pure aromas and flavors. 90 pts. -Wine Spectator Grand Tour 5/5/12
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.
look = 6/10, smell = 15/20, taste = 13/20; total = 34/50
Still too closed in the bouquet. Will try to taste the wine again in 2-3 years from now.
External Reviews for Lynch Bages Premier
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
A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Lynch Bages Blanc de Lynch Bages 750ml
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.
