Ch. Lynch Bages - 2019 New Release Review
Ch. Lynch Bages has long been a favourite of ours and this is most definitely the case in 2019, where the Estate has produced an exceptional Grand Vin.
“This takes hold from the first moment and powers along, delivering a ton of black brambly fruit, liquorice, grilled cedar and Pauillac confidence. The tannins are pretty chewy, really closing in on the end of play, giving no doubt that this is going to age slowly and for many decades, but there is a creaminess to the overall structure that is already evident.”
97/100 point, Jane Anson, Decanter
“A tight and very focused young red with redcurrant, tile and blackberry undertones. Lead pencil, too. It’s full-bodied with very polished, creamy tannins and lots of intense dark fruit. Compact fruit and tannins. Structured.”
96-97/100 points, James Suckling
