Château Lynch-Bages 2009 was purchased in its original wooden cases and comes from a great Bordeaux vintage.

Lynch-Bages, with a succession of fine vintages since 1981, has justifiably built up a solid reputation based on deeply concentrated, classically styled wines. Its owner, Jean-Michel Cazes, is a proud, gregarious man, who has constantly championed the wines of Lynch-Bages, Pauillac and Bordeaux. So much so, that President Chirac bestowed upon him the country’s highest decoration – a Knighthood in the Legion of Honour.

”Wow. Intense aromas of blackberries, currants and blueberries, follow through to a full body, with wonderful fruit and ultra-fine tannins. Fabulous Lynch. One of the top buys of the vintage. Best since 1989. I think that 2010 is probably better.” James Suckling

”…an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense of heaviness or fatigue. This exquisite Lynch Bages should drink well for 30+ years.” Robert Parker
