In the powerful style of Lynch-Bages, although perhaps less exuberant than usual. Instead the concentration comes from juicy fruit, which gives it the a softer quality. Even so, it still has solid tannins, dense texture... In the powerful style of Lynch-Bages, although perhaps less exuberant than usual. Instead the concentration comes from juicy fruit, which gives it the a softer quality. Even so, it still has solid tannins, dense texture and always the promise of good aging.

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.

Lots of currant and lemon rind undertones. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Tight and linear but pretty and bright. Just opening now. Drink or hold.

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.

Wine Spectator, April 2011
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.

Very dense dark crimson with a hint of evolution at the rim. Extremely introvert – not much nose for the moment though obviously very concentrated. Lots of acidity. Spark. This could be from the Latour stable? Velvety... Very dense dark crimson with a hint of evolution at the rim. Extremely introvert – not much nose for the moment though obviously very concentrated. Lots of acidity. Spark. This could be from the Latour stable? Velvety texture; minerally flavours. Pretty glossy and confident. 17.5/20

Dark berries, redcurrant, licorice and mint on the nose. Sweet, tactile, chewy and rich, with a firm edge of acidity giving cut and definition to the flavors of crushed cherry, redcurrant, minerals and spices. The building tannins come across as smooth. An elegantly styled Pauillac with a firm spine of acids and tannins for aging. 90+

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
