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.

Revealing a still youthful ruby/purple color as well as impressive notes of graphite, cedar pencil, cassis, tobacco, and obvious minerality, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, polished tannins, and a concentrated, layered texture. Jean-Charles Cazes described the vintage as late and great for Cabernet Sauvignon, and this beauty has classic Cabernet flair in spades. Powerful yet also fresh and elegant, it benefits from a decant and will continue drinking beautifully for another 20-30 years.

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.

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!

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.

It could do with another few years, and it's built to go the decades. Accomplished and enjoyable.

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.

It’s now surrounded by a three-star Michelin restaurant, Cordeillan-Bages, and a thriving village square, where there was once, not so long ago, a ruin. Through sheer force of will and brilliance, he has raised Lynch-Bages effectively from fifth to second-growth status, earning his family a place at the table among some pretty spiffy neighbors. Even in a challenging vintage, his wine buzzes with energy, this 2008 layered with floral fruit, scents of forest mushrooms and mineral tannins, all playing off each other and adding up to an expansive, savory elegance. This still has several years of development ahead. Duclot La Vinicole, NY

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.
