The 2019 Château Lynch-Bages is stunningly good, and it's going to be interesting to compare this to the 2018 over the coming decades. Based on 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit...

Even better in the bottle than it was in barrel, clearly, the 2019 is in contention for the best vintage of Lynch Bages ever produced! And that is really saying something considering all the fabulous wines that have come...

Decanter, October 2023

Intense, dark currant fruit on the nose and palate with pronounced lead-pencil character unmistakably placing the wine in Pauillac. Powerful tannins evident on the palate, plenty of acidity and new oak characters all...

Fantastic blackberries, blackcurrants, lead pencil and violets. So Pauillac on the nose! Full-bodied with a dense, layered palate and tight yet plush tannins that give the wine layers and gravitas. Compact. Long finish...

Tight black fruits, run through with espresso, cocoa bean and bitter black chocolate shavings. Brilliant quality, with tannic heft and precision. Takes a jump halfway through the palate and lifts right off. I have tasted...

The Wine Independent, May 2023

(97 + points) The 2019 Lynch-Bages is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it gallops out with bold notions of warm cassis, stewed black...

Vinous, February 2023

The 2019 Lynch-Bages has an outgoing bouquet, the new oak not as well integrated as its peers at the moment, more inchoate by comparison. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, quite saline with black pepper...

Wine Enthusiast, October 2022

The wine's power is important and impressive. Behind this lies a solid structure along with powerful black fruits, allowing the succulent nature of the Cabernet Sauvignon to shine. The wine will develop slowly over many...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2022

(96+ points) A true classic from this estate, the 2019 Lynch-Bages has turned out brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis and sweet blackberry fruit mingled with licorice, mint, cigar wrapper and loamy...

Wine Spectator, January 2022

Gorgeous from the start, with lush and caressing cassis, dark plum and blackberry compote flavors that are substantial in feel although they seem to glide through, carried by a very refined structure that lets in alluring...

Decanter also rated this wine 97, highlighting its "intense, dark currant fruit on the nose and palate with pronounced lead-pencil character."

Jeb Dunnuck gave an outstanding score of 100, calling it "stunningly good" and a "massive, incredibly concentrated Lynch-Bages."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it 96+ points, describing it as a "true classic" with "aromas of cassis and sweet blackberry fruit mingled with licorice, mint, cigar wrapper, and loamy soil." The review highlighted its "rich, powdery tannins and succulent balancing acids," noting it is the last vintage produced in Lynch-Bages' old winery.

Jeff Leve of The Wine Cellar Insider rated it 98, calling it a contender for the "best vintage of Lynch-Bages ever produced." He described it as "intense, concentrated, long and expansive," with layers of ripe, rich fruits and a great candidate for long aging.

Other notable reviews include Wine Spectator's 96 points, praising its "lush and caressing cassis, dark plum and blackberry compote flavors," and Jane Anson's 97 points, noting its "tight black fruits" and "tannic heft and precision."
