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.
The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage. Drink 2017-2032.- 90 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
