An impressive, strong effort from Lynsolence, this wine, which normally is 100% Merlot, tipping the scale at 14.5%, has an almost opaque bluish/purple color that is followed by a full-bodied, very concentrated, beautifully made wine with sweet tannin, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel and almost skyscraper-like intensity and richness. This is a star of the vintage and a great, great effort from Lynsolence. Production from the tiny 6.5-acre vineyard was a measly 22 hectoliters per hectare. Drink it over the next 15 or more years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The 2012 Lynsolence is a gorgeous, modern wine built on serious intensity and texture.

The 2012 Lynsolence is a gorgeous, modern wine built on serious intensity and texture. A host of black cherry, crème de cassis, spice, licorice, menthol, mocha, cloves, new leather and licorice notes come alive as this sumptuous, large-scaled wine shows off its alluring personality. The 2012 Lynsolence is super-impressive today and should drink well for another decade-plus.

A very ambitious wine, with loads of boysenberry, plum and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors rumbling along, lined with lots of anise and fruitcake details. Shows a wall of toast on the polished finish. For fans of the fruit-bomb style, but should develop with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2022. – JM

The ripe raspberry and violet flavors continue on the palate in a weighty, rich texture. The tannins have softened a little yet are still present and tense on the finish, begging for another 3-5 years of age. An overall juicy wine from start to finish, this a deliciously hedonistic Saint Emilion that is a big boy right now, and wil certainly improve with cellar age.
