Description

98 James Sucklng
“A wine with great beauty and finesse. Such elegance and ethereal quality for this estate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a juicy delicious finish. Long and beautiful. This is the best Lynch in a long, long time. I love the precision here.” (11/2013)

96 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with smoke, graphite and spring flowers. It is a massive Lynch Bages, full-bodied and very 1989-ish, with notable power, loads of tannin, and extraordinary concentration and precision. This is not a Lynch Bages to drink in its exuberant youth, but one to hold on to for 5-6 years and drink over the following three decades.” (2/2013)

96 Wine Enthusiast
“This sumptuous wine is driven by perfectly ripe fruit as well as dense, dusty and dry tannins. Great swathes of blackberry sweep across the palate, followed by juicy acidity. Such a combination will make this impressive wine a delight to drink in 10 years and beyond.” *Cellar Selection* (2/2013)

96 Wine Spectator
Roasted cedar, tobacco and bay leaf notes start off this structured but lively bottling, with intense currant, blackberry and black cherry flavors at the core. The iron-laced grip and pleasantly austere plum pit and licorice snap accents fill in on the tar-tinged finish. Great range, character and typicity. If you ever need to explain Pauillac to someone, give them this.” (3/2013)

94 Connoisseurs Guide
“We confess to having a long love affair with this property and seem to find something to like in its wines in both good years and bad, but this bottling comes with no need for any kind of forgiveness, and it is a textbook example of what Lynch Bages does best. It is full-bodied, wonderfully concentrated and rife with cassis and cedar-like spice, and its ten-year tannins are beautifully buffered by extracted fruit. It is as sure a bet to grow into better as a sure bet can get.” *Two Stars* (4/2013)
