A sensational effort for the vintage this textured opulent superb Lynch Bages is already strutting its stuff and should easily last for 20 years. Medium to full-bodied with an opaque dense purple color notes of flowers and cassis a layered texture that builds incrementally in the mouth and tremendous purity and depth it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Bravo!

Our love affair with Lynch-Bages stretches back a good many years and while we have frankly been disappointed with the property in more recent harvests the 2008 is back in top form and offers up a stunning measure of deep very confident and wonderfully extracted blackcurrant fruit. It is full and supple and fit with perfectly ripe tannins and there is no question that it will age famously for years to come. It is in our minds one of the stars of the vintage.

Tasted ex-château and single blind in Southwold. The Lynch Bages 2008 is very well defined on the nose with more red instead of black fruits graphite and sous-bois intermingling with touches kirsch and cassis. This is a little showy compared to previous bottles that I have encountered. The palate is well balanced with a little hardness on the entry understandable at this stage. Quite tight at the moment nice freshness with a long tail on the finish this is a fine upstanding conservative Pauillac. Tasted January 2012.

Very solid with a super beam of dark currant tobacco and iron pushed by charcoal melted fig and cocoa notes. This has a nicely rounded feel but there's plenty of grip in reserve. Best from 2013 through 2018. -J.M.

Restrained nose of red currant boysenberry and tart cherry with a touch of damp earth as well. This surprisingly fruit driven Lynch Bages is big and lush upon entry then thins out a bit before finishing with a nice tannic punch. I like the prospects of aging this wine for at least a couple decades after bottling. Nicely textured yet firm in overall structure
