Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

My runner up for left bank WOTN. All of the Pauillac wines tasted were fantastic, but this was a bit above most. Waves of dark fruit, lots of complexity, and fantastic length. Firm structure, but still beautiful at this stage.

Simply one of the top three young vintages of Lynch Bages I’ve had. Gorgeous med to dark red fruit, violets, beautiful soft earth, excellent acidy and stunning finish. Must buy and buy a lot.
