Wine Details


Red Blend





Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) Typically one of the greatest wines of Pauillac, Lynch-Bages, made primarily from Cabernet-Sauvignon, is famous for its fine bouquet and rich tannin which becomes soft and delicious with age. Lynch-Bages is powerful with a long aftertaste. Beautiful dark colour. Red and black plum berry and cherry fruit, aromatic woods nose and taste. The wine is very finely balanced with ripe menthol cherry fruit and elegantly firm wood tanins. A lovely long elegant aftertaste.
