Tasting Notes

Vinous 92

The 2009 Lynch-Bages is very well defined on the nose, yet powerful with ample fruit to spare: blackberry, wild strawberry, cranberry mixed with cedar and a light mint touch. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and lightly spiced with superb focus. It exerts a gentle grip from start to finish, then delivers an engaging, spicy finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent. Tasted at the Lynch Bages vertical at the chateau.

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2030

Robert Parker 96

The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 Lynch Bages is boldly scented of creme de cassis, blackberry pie and baked plums with chocolate box, incense and underbrush suggestions plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, taut and well sustained in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy texture and a lively backbone lifting the black fruit core to a nice long finish. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 23/02/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2019-2044

JancisRobinson.com 17/20

Tasted blind. Dark glowing crimson. Pretty light nose and mild, well-balanced palate. Just a little timid. A tad scrawny on the end. Easy but with some rather underripe notes. A tad underpowered. Hint of malted milk. [14/02/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2034
