The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 Lynch Bages is boldly scented of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and baked plums with chocolate box, incense and underbrush suggestions plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, taut and well sustained in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy texture and a lively backbone lifting the black fruit core to a nice long finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Serious tannins at the long finish suggest this has long-term aging potential. Drink now with a big steak or hold.

Tight and backward this has dense almost chewy layers of fig currant and plum cake behind a very solid wall of cedar roasted vanilla and charcoal notes. There's serious grip on the finish with an iron edge that won't quit. Best from 2015 through 2035. -JM

A dense immense solidly powerful wine. The ripest fruit overflows paralleling the dark solid tannins. As so often Lynch-Bages is a blockbuster dark and concentrated with immense aging potential.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Lynch Bages '09 is a triumph from Jean-Charles Chevalier and his team, putting in a superb performance under tough blind conditions (to the point where I speculated that it could be Mouton!) It has a wonderful controlled and precise on the understated nose - but there is a brooding presence here - the sense of a class act that does not want to be disturbed. Graphite, blackberry and crushed stone unfold with every passing moment. The palate is medium-bodied with a citrus fresh entry. There is very good weight here, primal but supremely well balanced with a gradual build towards the insistent minty finish. Gorgeous.

Blending 76% Cabernet Sauvignon with 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, produced a powerful, concentrated Pauillac with great depth of flavor. Layers of fresh blackberry, coffee, tobacco, cassis, pepper, black cherry and gravel made up the inviting perfume. Fresh, ripe, exuberant and lusty, this stylish wine has it all going on. This vintage competes with any Lynch Bages produced following the dynamic duo of 1989 and 1990.

Layers of blackberry, bilberry, brine and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, slightly lower in acidity than the 2010 Lynch Bages, dense and quite sinewy towards the finish. It might miss the class of its peers but you cannot help but admire the brawn underneath its aristocratic coat. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. -- Neal Martin

Plump, ripe, succulent, and concentrated, with firm but fine-grained tannins and some chocolatey oak. It may lack some refinement, but there’s ample solid fruit here, and plenty of spice.

Dark purple almost black in color with slight hues. Bold flavors of red and black fruits with plum smoked meats and oak are mixed with vanilla and milk chocolate. This is a powerful wine but showing huge tannins high toned acidity and great purity of fruit. All things considered this Lynch Bages needs time. You must be patient to truly see the true greatness of this wine. Wait at least 5-7 years and then enjoy over the following 25 years.
