2000 Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

The wine of Chateau Lynch-Bages is part of the lineage of the great Pauillac wines. Blended mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon, it combines structure and finesse, elegance, and longevity. It is further distinguished by its opulence. Generous right from its youth, it develops more flavors and greater complexity as it matures.
Manual harvests, rigorous selection, and aging for 12 to 15 months produce wines with superb concentration, rich tannins, and notes of spices and menthol. With time, they develop an exceptional aromatic complexity.

'Very dark ruby with some evolution. Toasty and appetizing. Very appealing subtlety and complexity on the nose though on the palate, it is clearly not as ripe as some. Maybe higher yields? An attractive drink but far from intense.'

'Beginning to open magnificently, the still dense purple-colored 2000 reveals a blossoming bouquet of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years.'
