Chateau Lynch-Bages 2012 750ml
Pauillac (Premier Grand Cru Classe)
WE94 JS93-94 TA93 WS92 JR16.5
James Suckling 93-94
A fruity wine for the vintage with dense tannins. Full body, with impressive structure. Long finish. Generous and attractive. I like the balance and precision for the vintage
Tim Atkin 93
This wine contains the lowest percentage of Cabernet at Lynch since 1994, reflecting the
tricky growing conditions in the Médoc. This is still a pretty serious wine, mind you. The oak
is a little intrusive, but it's still a classic Pauillac with notes of green pepper, blackcurrant and
graphite and densely packed tannins.
Jancis Robinson 16.5
Blackish purple. Lots of minerals on the nose. Tight and taut and almost painfully tart but there is energy here certainly!
