Château Lynch Bages is an excellent wine which consistently outperforms its fifth growth classification and is regularly ranked in the same league as second growths. The style was defined in the 1930’s by JC Cazes and today the wine’s distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac’s greatest.
Complex and generous with concentrated fruits. Medium to full-bodied with smooth tannins and an amazing length.
A dense, chewy wine for the vintage, with plum, currant and blackberry character. Full body, polished tannic texture and a bright finish. Very pretty indeed. This needs time to soften. Try in 2019.- 93 pts James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
