As always, Lynch-Bages comes in with an impressive performance. It is rich, dense and ripe with black fruit flavors. The texture is solid, the intense fruits complemented by ripe tannins. And, to finish, there is the freshness of currant fruit acidity. A really fine wine. *Editors' Choice* (RV)
Lynch-Bages provides the beauty and grandeur of Pauillac on a smaller scale than the firsts. It's as polished as any of the great wines of the region, with lovely cassis flavors on a silken frame. Complex and savory, the purity of the fruit makes this wine mouthwatering even at this early stage in its evolution. Put a case away; this is structured to age for 20 years and beyond.
Red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, coffee, mocha and leather. Supple on the palate but conveys an impression of less consistent ripeness than the young 2006, combining sweet plum, coffee and mocha flavors with slightly green notes of herbs and licorice. In a drier style, but the tannins are nicely ripe and in balance with the wine. (ST)
Fully saturated inky ruby. Captivating nose offers redcurrant, black cherry, tar, tobacco, graphite and cedar aromas. Sweet, lush and ripe, with pure blackberry, cocoa and coffee flavors accented by a hint of shoe polish. Very good balance and sound acidity keeps this light on its feet. Finishes a bit warm and simple, with average length but good texture for the vintage. An excellent example of how good some of the 2004 Bordeaux can be. (ID)
Aromas of currant bush and raspberry follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. A balanced and pleasing wine already. (JS)
