Full-bodied with ultrapolished tannins and a silky mouthfeel. The palate turns to leaves cedar and dried berries on the finish which goes on and on. This is still reserved for the vintage suggesting a long life ahead. Just coming around now but will improve many years ahead. I have always loved this Lynch.-'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009)

It is such a consistent wine, a Pauillac that never lets you down. Here it continues to sport a relatively backward blackberry and cedar scented nose, the graphite (pencil box) element a little more accentuated. The aromatic purr like a Bentley, unraveling with each swirl of the glass. The palate is very well defined with a rigid structure, well-judged acidity and hints of chestnut and cooked meat offering secondary notes on the dense finish that suggest a long drinking plateau. What a stupendous wine from Jean-Michel Cazes! Tasted June 2014. - Neal Martin
