99Robert M. Parker Jr.

The biggest, richest, fullest-bodied...exhibits an unbelievably explosive nose of black currants, cedarwood, herbs and spice. ...full-bodied, voluptuously textured, rich, intense with superb purity as well as thrilling levels of fruit...

95Wine Spectator

Very dark ruby color, still almost black. Superripe fruit aromas, with currants, prunes and spices. Full-bodied, with layers of fruit and velvety tannins. It goes on and on. Very polished Lynch-Bages.

93Stephen Tanzer

..vibrant aromas of blackcurrant, bitter chocolate and shoe polish. Chewy, sweet, dense and deep, with the wine strong minerality contributing to the impression of aromatic lift in the mouth. The classiest of these vintages of Lynch-Bages..

17.5Jancis Robinson

..with baked black fruit and cedarwood, chocolate and perhaps fresh sap too. A phenomenal layered flavour, showing espresso then chocolate then hot spice then blackcurrant and with an underlying lightly floral aromatic persistence...


France, Bordeaux, Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most famous appellation, thanks to the fact that it is home to three of the region’s fabled first-growth châteaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Latour. Perched on the left bank of the Gironde River north of the city of Bordeaux, Pauillac is centered around the commune of Pauillac and includes about 3,000 acres of vineyards. The Bordeaux classification of 1855 named 18 classified growths, including the three above mentioned First Growths. Cabernet Sauvignon is the principal grape grown, followed by Merlot. The soil is mostly sandy gravel mixed with marl and iron. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “the textbook Pauillac would tend to have a rich, full-bodied texture, a distinctive bouquet of black currants, licorice and cedary scents, and excellent aging potential.”
