1981 Chateau Lynch Bages Pauillac

Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) This is densely packed, with loads of crushed fig, plum and blackberry. Shows ample tobacco, roasted apple wood and bittersweet cocoa notes as well, but stays defined, with a long, authoritative finish that delivers waves of grip, backed by even more grip.

    RP86 Drink NOW A low key, miniaturized style of Lynch Bages, the 1981 exhibits notions of damp earth intermixed with red and black fruits, weedy tobacco, licorice and spice. Narrowly constructed, medium-bodied and beginning to dry out as the acids and tannins have begun to dominate, this Lynch Bages needs to be drunk ... soon.
