2003 Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac

2003 Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac

€299.00
 
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. Parker : 94 / 100 J. Robinson : 15,5 / 20 Wine Advocate-Parker : A healthy, youthful dark plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a bouquet of smoke, barbecued meats, black currants and new saddle leather. With full body and sweet tannin, this 2003 is strutting its stuff. Although it is not as fine as the 1989, 1990, or 2000, it is a complex, classic Pauillac to enjoy over the next decade.
