1996 Chateau Lynch Bages Pauillac Magnum 1.5L
In 2019, an intense, aromatic, great Cabernet Sauvignon nose. Beautiful richness on the palate, mature, opulent and hugely welcoming and velvety. Super wine - seize it now. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
In the flight of young wines, with all the vintages of the nineties represented, this wine stood out for its absolute purity of creme de cassis, ripe fruit, medium to full body, high tannin, wonderful sweetness, massive richness on the mid-palate, and abundant power, density, and ripeness. It is clearly the finest Lynch Bages since the 1989 and 1990. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025.
WINESPECTATOR / JAMES SUCKLING (92)
This is much more open than the 1995. Offers aromas and flavors of currant, mint and spices. Full-bodied, soft and velvety, with a fruit finish. Starting to drink well now.--Lynch-Bages non-blind vertical.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
