Cabernet dominant, will some angularity to the tannins but this is high quality, and has a floral lift and juiciness to it. A food vintage, because acidities are pretty high, but this delivers one of the best wines of Pauillac. New optical sorter used this year. 65% new oak, 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 66% of production in the first wine.

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.

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.

Should be very solid when it comes together after some cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2028. –JM
