1989 Chateau Lynch-Bages Bordeaux
International Wine CellarRating: 91(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 103, July/August 2002 ($154-$239) Full, saturated ruby-red. Intriguing nose melds cassis, shoe polish, iodine and mint, along with a faint sweaty quality. Thick, sweet and large but a bit blocky and inelegant. Still quite young and bound-up. A backward, solidly structured wine that finishes with fairly tough tannins. Needs at least another five years of bottle aging.
