On the nose, dark, floral currants, blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries, poached strawberries, crushed dry rocks, dry stones, tobacco leaf and fresh dark & red florals with deep violets.

The body is full. Tannins are firm but round. Dark floral currants, blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries, poached strawberries, crushed dry rocks, dry stones, dry underbrush, dark spices, leather, dark, moist soil, cedar, tobacco leaf, graphite and fresh dark & red florals with deep violets. The acidity is excellent. The structure, tension and length are superb. The finish is really good but but will blossom in 15 plus years and will cellar 30-40 years easily. It’s well balanced fruit & earth.

One of the better Lynch-Bages I've tasted in awhile and sure to get better.

I had to adjust my expectations...down. Perhaps still too young. Not sure. Didn’t seem to have quite the complexity, richness, graphite minerality and depth I was expecting. Vibrant red fruit with nice integrated tannins. Medium bodied.

16.5+/20 (90+/100) Мутновато. Аромат чёрной смородины, вишни, шоколада, «кислая» нота. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, сухими, бархатистыми по текстуре танинами. Выглядит как закос под биодинамику. #annualclarettasting
