Château Lynch Bages, 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac, 2019

Tasting Note:

Jean-Charles described 2019 as “Blue Velvet”, a vintage that offers “a beautiful complementarity between fruity Merlots, rich in sugar… and dense, well-structured, very fresh Cabernets”. His flagship Lynch Bages is a glorious, grandiose wine, boasting huge concentration, yet there’s a sense on grace and poise. There’s a lovely florality to the fruit; violet scented cassis, Asian spice, sumptuous crème de mûre, notes of pencil shavings, tobacco and cedar. It feels more exuberant than the cerebral, introverted 2018, yet it’s just as profound. There’s a veneer of fleshy fruit that covers the muscular, brooding core of deep cassis that delights the palate. Restrained, controlled, this builds and builds revealing layers of fruit and mineral complexity. Dense, but never weighty, this glides effortlessly coating the palate revealing swathes of purple fruit, painting a picture of fine detail with its glorious tannic profile. So much energy, so much power; what a fabulous Lynch Bages. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.
