Château Lynch-Bages 2010 Barrel Sample Red (Pauillac)

  • Online Exclusive

96-98 Powerfully tannic wine, based on firm dryness. The weight offers the potential fruitiness, while the acidity gives the necessary freshness.

Château Lynch-Bages 2010 Red (Pauillac)

  • 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. Such a combination will make this impressive wine a delight to drink in 10 years and beyond.

Château Lynch-Bages 2009 Red (Pauillac)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $195

A dense, immense, solidly powerful wine. The ripest fruit overflows, paralleling the dark, solid tannins. As so often, Lynch-Bages is a blockbuster, dark and concentrated, with immense aging potential.

95-97 Barrel sample. Concentrated and dense, the fruit here is powered by blackberry and cranberry tannins, as well as by the spicy wood. The wine is soild and firm, obviously powerful

Château Lynch-Bages 2005 Red (Pauillac)

  1. $115

Classic Lynch-Bages with just a bit of extra power and richness. While the tannins are structured, it is the velvety fruit that rolls around the mouth that is the most dominant character. It is coming together into a wine that will be big and dense, but never over the top.

Château Lynch-Bages 2011 Barrel Sample Red (Pauillac)

  • Online Exclusive

94-96. Barrel sample. Like so many wines in this vintage, this shows black-currant acidity. It’s lively and fruity, with the firm tannins providing a counterpoint.

Château Lynch-Bages 2005 Barrel Sample Red (Pauillac)

  • Online Exclusive

94-96 Barrel sample. A wine that seems to revel in richness. The tannins are certainly structured, but the fruit is just bursting out. The dryness and the acidity, though, promise that the fruit will be tamed and the wine will age well .

Château Lynch-Bages 2000 Red (Pauillac)

  1. $100

Typical of Lynch-Bages in its sumptuous rich style, this is a resounding success for the team of Jean-Michel Cazes. With its sweet fruit, opulent but balanced wood and red and black fruit flavors, it is a wine that will develop relatively quickly but will certainly age.
