Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years.- RP

Long and authoritative, with notes of bay, pepper, leather and juniper slowly emerging on the finish. Terrific structure and integration give this a chiseled feel. No rush here.--Blind 2000 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2033. — JM

Another wonderful 2000 coming out of its long sleep. Beautiful aromas of berry, tobacco, herb and spice that follow through to a full palate with round, textured tannins and lots of fruit.

With a deep plum color and slight lightening at the edges, it's medium to full-bodied and has a layered texture as well as integrated tannins. A classic, elegant, yet still powerful Lynch-Bages, it delivers plenty of sweet fruit and a great finish. It benefits from an hour of air and will certainly hold at this stage for another 10-15 years with no issues.

With air, you found a big, juicy, powerful gulp of cassis, helped along with cedar, tobacco, spicy red fruits and leafy notes. Full-bodied, concentrated, structured and youthful, another 5-8 years will add more softness to the tannins and allow the wine to continue filling out. The last few sips were fabulous. The wine is throwing a lot of sediment, so be careful when decanting. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2000&wine=Chateau%20Lynch-Bages

With its sweet fruit, opulent but balanced wood and red and black fruit flavors, it is a wine that will develop relatively quickly but will certainly age. ROGER VOSS
