Tasting notes: Deep garnet red colour, Chateau Lynch-Bages 2016 has the characteristics of a remarkably mature vintage. The nose is very expressive, with notes of dark fruit (blackcurrant, morello cherry, etc.) mixed with fresh touches of mint. The attack is smooth, revealing an exceptional substance, supported by a wonderful freshness. The tannins are already remarkably well-blended.
About the winery:
Chateau Lynch-Bages, a 5eme Cru Classe, is one of the best-known Medoc estates. Lynch-Bages specific style has been affirmed by the arrival of Jean-Charles Cazes at the head of the estate in 1934. Innovative winemaker, emblematic of a new generation of owners knowing how to break with tradition, taking risks to ensure harvests fully ripe, he was known to be often the last to harvest at Pauillac. Lynch-Bages has been run by the Cazes family ever since.
Wine Advocate: 97+/100
