Description

Reviews for the 2008 Chateau Lynch-Bages: "A sensational effort for the vintage, this textured, opulent, superb Lynch Bages is already strutting its stuff and should easily last for 20 years. Medium to full-bodied with an opaque dense purple colour, notes of flowers and cassis, a layered texture that builds incrementally in the mouth and tremendous purity and depth, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Bravo!" Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 2011.

"Juxtaposed against the Pichon-Lalande, the Lynch Bages is far more reticent on the nose with more overt graphite and sous-bois aromas inflecting the fruit. It is tightly coiled at the moment and needs a couple of years to blossom. The palate is medium-bodied with a ferrous entry, firm tannins but a little disjointed and edgy at the moment. Certainly a little awkward now and still quite -strict- as it was in barrel. I feel that this Lynch Bages should be granted time to prove itself, so for now I will be prudent with my score. Drink 2013-2025. Tasted October 2010." Neil Martin - Wine Journal 2011
