It is interesting that this was the next vintage tasted in the vertical tasting and I am not surprised given the mediocre decade of performances by Lynch Bages.

It is interesting that this was the next vintage tasted in the vertical tasting and I am not surprised given the mediocre decade of performances by Lynch Bages. Only the 1975 stands out and that wine seems only good when compared to modern day successes. The 1970 is an old style Lynch Bages with plenty of dry tannin in the finish. Compellingly aromatic it offers aromas of cedar wood spice box tobacco earth black currants and new saddle leather. Spicy concentrated and burly with mouth-searing tannin this big thick wine is a terrific example of Lynch Bages made in an older style. It will continue to last for 10-15 years but look for it to become increasingly austere and attenuated. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.
