Red Bordeaux Blend - Fifth Growth
Producer Notes

Located just outside the town of Pauillac, Chateau Lynch Bages is famous for its Cabernet-based wines, which typify the best of the appellation. The estate is classified as one of eighteen Fifth Growths from the official 1855 classification; many experts, though, would argue that its quality merits it a place among the Second Growths. Typical Lynch-Bages reveals a wonderful bouquet, rich tannins,... More »

This wine is the most complete Lynch-Bages that I have ever tasted. I thought the 1985 was suberb, but the 1982 adds another dimension that eclips all other vintages in this stage of evolution. It exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a knock-out nose of minerals, licorice, cassis, and an unmistakable lead pencil smell that reminds me of top Lafite vintages. It is rich yet no sense of heaviness. I tasted a ting of sweetness of black currant and a hint of blackberry in its flavor profile. What an awesome Lynch-Bages. My favorite vintage ever tasted.

Tasted at the Acker BYOB. Red berrys, leather and spices in that smoky lych Bages mix that is so lovely. Ready to drink no and for a very long time.

Very well balanced, but also very brett-driven. Thus, too much Band-Aid aroma to enjoy it.
