WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 1999
...intense aromas of mint berries and currants. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a delicious ripe fruit and lead-pencil aftertaste. Very fine indeed...

The 1996 Lynch Bages has a delightful fresh, minty bouquet that does not quite deliver the complexity of recent vintages, nicely perfumed with hints of wilted rose petal developing with time. The palate is well balanced... The 1996 Lynch Bages has a delightful fresh, minty bouquet that does not quite deliver the complexity of recent vintages, nicely perfumed with hints of wilted rose petal developing with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, fresh from the start with blackcurrant pastilles, a touch of tobacco with a tightly coiled, minerally, slightly sharp finish that perhaps just needs a little more depth. I appreciate that lingering pencil lead note on the aftertaste, completing a solid if unspectacular Lynch Bages. It's the kind of Pauillac I would grab from a restaurant list at the right price. A point. Tasted July 2016. - Neal Martin

...Ripe aromas of currant tobacco leather smoke and game. Sweetly penetrating currant and cherry flavors in the mouth; rich and nicely balanced with a silky texture...
