Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 1989 Lynch-Bages is one of Jean-Michel Cazes’s triumphs. At three decades, it shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. Blackberry and cedar soar from the glass just as they did from the bottle last year, and touches of graphite develop, all beautifully defined and focused. As I’ve proclaimed before, there is such energy and vigor here! The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, minty opening. The cedar element is a little stronger than the previous bottles that I have tasted, yet there is still that symmetry and focus. This particular bottle shows a touch more development on the finish compared to others encountered over the years, with great structure and grip, notes of tobacco and just a hint of morels surfacing on the aftertaste. A remarkable Lynch-Bages that is at its peak. As an aside, Jean-Michel Cazes mentioned that there are few bottles of the 1989 remaining in their reserves. A break-in during the 1990s saw robbers of good taste steal much of their stock. Tasted from an ex-cellar bottle at the château. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2019) — a month ago

Alter de Cazes 2015

This wine is 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre. It had plenty of dark and almost smoky plummy fruit yet remains surprisingly elegant. Nice mineral notes, good but not overbearing acidity and a fine hint of garrigue. Lots of class. — a year ago

Echo de Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

The estate once belonged to the famous Lynch family, of Irish origin, and was acquired by Jean-Charles Cazes in 1934. His grandson, Jean-Michel Cazes restructured the estate in 1974. A blend of 73% Cab Sauv & 27% Merlot, deep purple red, intense berry fruit aromas with sweet vanilla notes. On the palate juicy blackberry and plum flavors with cacao and espresso notes. Dusty tight tannins, lingering ending with an oaky mineral character. — a year ago
