James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, October 2015
A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. Lovely now to drink... A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. Lovely now to drink but better in 2017.

Currant blackberry cherry and hints of licorice. Full-bodied with silky and refined tannins and a fresh finish. This is racy and pretty. Very refined. Very structured.

The Château Lynch Bages 2005 has an enthralling graphite and cedar scented bouquet, like a young cousin of the Grand Puy Lacoste. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, one of the most feminine and elegant Lynch Bages in recent years with a lightness of touch on the finish. That is not to say it lacks fruit intensity, but the balance is so assured that is just seems to glide over the mouth. Stylish, assured and meticulous winemaking here.

Sweet aromas of black cherry cassis licorice menthol and flowers. Moderately dense supple and lush with fresh flavors of medicinal black cherry and minerals; round and ripe but not overly sweet. Solid Pauillac with broad ripe tannins and a building lingering finish. 90-93 points

As for the 2005 Lynch-Bages, it is a sexy, surprisingly soft and accessible style of wine, with a deep ruby/purple color, loads of crème de cassis, cedar wood and forest floor notes, medium to full body, ripe tannin and a long, fleshy finish. Drink it over the next 15+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Hints of raspberry. The graphite follows through on the palate with a very fine tannic structure. Sweet candied fruits with a long finish of vanilla and toasted oak.
