1989 Lynch-Bages Bordeaux Blend - France - Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - Fifth Growth

France - Bordeaux - Pauillac

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 »

Was the favorite of the night against a strong line-up. This should be a second or first growth. Rich fruit with plenty of tanin holding the structure together.

out of 375. Dark garnet with the barest hint of lightening at the rim. Very young nose of obvious ripe cabernet fruit and creme de cassis. Still very primary. A touch of earth beneath. In the mouth still very tannic, but the tannins hit late, in the mid and back palate. Very long. Doesnt have the cut and fresh acidity I remember from this out of 750, but very good nonetheless.

Side by side with the 1990 Mondavi Rsv. Several people called the Lynch as the Californian. Both wines heading towards the sunset but doing so in style. Entirely secondary flavors at this point, but great tanin/acid backbone remains on both. A lot of fun to see them going strong

Everything is in balance here; drinking beautifully with a long finish; I suspect there are 5+ years left, but hard to imagine it getting that much better

Deep red color with no signs of browning. A shy nose at first, developing cedar, tar and mushroom notes with time. But what a mouthful. Sour cherry and marzipan, evolved flavors of tobacco, coffee and smoke. Concentrated and full of round tannins, yet impeccably balanced. Just beginning to show its stuff. A great time to drink this wine, but will be great for many more years.

Hugely concentrated flavors have just begun to offer up a nose of cedar and creme de cassis. Powerful and muscular, with high tannin and superb concentration, this is Lynch Bages at its biggest and most beastly. However, everything is in balance for a stunning evolution.

Just discovered this site tonight. Bought a case of Lynch Bages at release, have only opened 3 bottles, none for 3 or 4 years. Think I should drink another soon, and will update, but sounds like I will be pleased I bought the wine at about $35, snuck it in so my wife would not be pissed or think I was crazy for spending 400 bucks for a case of wine!! Haa, she LIKES wine now, and thanks me for my covert purchases of the past we were young and poor! Web may be older and a little less poor, but we got some decent wine down there!!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
