Reviews for 2011 Lynch Bages Bordeaux Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, May 2012
Like so many wines in this vintage this shows black-currant acidity. It's lively and fruity with the firm tannins providing a counterpoint. - R.V.

This has nice weight and intensity with a solid core of plum blackberry and cassis that's offset by a racy spicy frame. Very sleek through the finish with latent depth in reserve.-J.M.

A dense, chewy wine for the vintage, with plum, currant and blackberry character. Full body, polished tannic texture and a bright finish. Very pretty indeed. This needs time to soften. Try in 2019.

The 2011 Lynch Bages is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Merlot 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot raised in 75% new oak. It has an elegant understated bouquet compared to its peers with pure blackberry and cedar aromas linear and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins a gentle but firm grip with a harmonious crisp quintessential Pauillac finish with graphite lingering on the aftertaste. This is a stylish Lynch Bages born to be drunk and enjoyed. Tasted April 2012.

The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Opaque at the core with a deep purple rim. Incredibly primary and closed in its current state with a very shy nose of red cherry cedar coffee and a touch of toasty oak. The palate offers vibrant (if slightly off-balance) acidity and fruit-driven flavors of red cherry currant and plum. Good length on the finish. A bit disjointed in its current state this will hopefully come together in time. Enjoy 2017-2030.
