    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.

    Medium ruby. Pungent aromas of currant, lead pencil, minerals, cedar and herbs. Penetrating but sweet, with perfumed inner-mouth aromas and lovely clarity of flavor. Finishes with dusty, even tannins that spread out nicely to coat the palate. Classic claret. I've liked this wine more each time I've tasted it.
