Reviews for 2000 Lynch Bages Bordeaux Blend

WS 96
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2003
Gorgeous aromas of plums blackberries and licorice with hints of mineral. Full-bodied with full silky tannins and a long long finish. Big and solid. Fantastic. If you love Lynch you won't be disappointed. Best after 2010... Gorgeous aromas of plums blackberries and licorice with hints of mineral. Full-bodied with full silky tannins and a long long finish.

An utterly profound Lynch-Bages this wine continues to remind me of a hypothetical blend of the 1990 and 1989. Interestingly when I asked Jean-Michel Cazes to rank his top four vintages of Lynch-Bages he ranked the 1989 first followed by three vintages that he said were essentially equivalent in quality - 1990 1996 and 2000. The 2000 Lynch-Bages exhibits a dense purple color loads of glycerin and extract big muscular sweet creme de cassis notes with hints of new saddle leather earth and tobacco leaf. The 2000 is forceful yet plush with a thick juicy succulent mid-palate ripe tannin and a long layered finish. I know it will be tempting to pull corks on this wine in its youth but it really will not hit its stride for 7-10 years and will last for at least 25. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.</P>

Typical of Lynch-Bages in its sumptuous rich style this is a resounding success for the team of Jean-Michel Cazes. With its sweet fruit opulent but balanced wood and red and black fruit flavors...
