94The Wine Advocate

...full-boded, very harmonious, a wonderful marriage of austerity and fleshiness that reminds me of the 1985. Very satisfying, a very "complete" Lynch Bages that has great potential...

94Wine Spectator

Much better than I ever remember. Complex aromas of currants, berries and mint. Full-bodied, very tannic, but velvety and caressing. Getting better all the time.

Fragrant, floral, sweet milk chocolate and allspice. The fruit is almost more red than black though; redcurrant and blackcurrant vie for supremacy, which is jolly good fun to experience. Soft yet firm tannin... it is smooth...


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.”
