Description

98    James Suckling
“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.” (2/2013)

97    Decanter
“Similarly Cabernet Sauvignon-driven, like Grand-Puy-Lacoste, but with more depth and power. Exudes dark, ripe blackberry and cassis with distinct iodine freshness. While the 70% new oak is fully integrated, it will be even better in 10 years (the 2000 vintage is perfect today). The length is amazing. A regal wine requiring a regal dish. Try with beef Wellington.” (5/2021)

96    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Lynch Bages comes sailing out of the glass with notes of redcurrant jelly, black cherry compote and cassis plus wafts of smoked meats, tar, cigar box and dried roses. Full-bodied, the palate is stacked with red and black fruit layers, framed by ripe, firm, fine-grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long.” (03/2020)

96    Roger Voss for Wine Enthusiast — CELLAR SELECTION
“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.” (2/2013)

96    James Molesworth for 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)

95    Neal Martin for Vinous
“The 2010 Lynch-Bages has a stunning bouquet with pixelated black fruit, crushed stone and graphite aromas that soar from the glass. This is just amazingly focused. The palate is medium-bodied with concentrated black fruit curiously tinged with cough candy, which here I find just a bit out of place. The acidity is extremely well judged and there is immense persistence on the finish.” (4/2020)
