This is solid the blackberry ripe fruit enveloping this structure with a velvet sheen. This is developing into one of the successes of the vintage.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Lynch Bages has another quite vivacious bouquet with lively black cherries, kirsch and wild mint aromas that do not hold back. I love the purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine supple tannin, well-judged acidity, a gentle grip in the mouth, and plenty of lightly spiced and surprisingly intense fruit on the bravura finish. The Cazes family oversaw a very sophisticated Lynch-Bages in this vintage that may well surpass many peoples' expectations. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Blackberry licorice and mint aromas lead to a full-bodied palate with velvety tannins and lots of blackberry and mineral fruit character. Shows outstanding concentration and balance. Best after 2014. -JS

Fully saturated bright ruby. Currently in a slightly dumb phase and aromatically compressed on the nose revealing cool blackberry and cassis aromas with extended aeration complicated by notes of cola flowers red cherry and sweet spices. Then soft round and ripe in the mouth with persistent flavors of black cherry cassis and cinnamon. A very serious wine offering impressive definition and very good balance turning almost austere at the back but with a pretty pristine quality to its repeating floral and black fruit notes. Finishes with smooth building tannins: don't even think of opening this beauty for another eight to ten years. One of the best vintage for Lynch-Bages in recent memory. 91+

The aromas are very bright with floral overtones of violets lilac and jasmine over ripe fresh red fruits. The sweeter floral aromatics are supported by a nice touch of spicy nutmeg and clove. On the palate this wine as great structure front to back. Dark roasted toffee flavors cover rich deep fruits. This is a very balanced wine with great structure and depth and should be very long lived.
