Fairly deep mature red; light sweet vanilla nose; rich, dense, a touch musty, tough tannins, burly; good length.
The color exhibits significant amber/orange at the edge, followed by a dusty, herbaceous, cedary nose with some ripe fruit. Full-bodied but slightly hollow, the wine exhibits more sweetness and expansiveness than I expected. This above average wine is beginning to reach full maturity. Given the number of washed-out, excessively tannic examples of 1975 Lynch-Bages I have tasted, I am now more optimistic about this wine.
A tannic vintage, particularly for the Médoc; this is drinking surprisingly well. Shows aromas of ripe berries and mushroom, with hints of tobacco. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, rich finish.--Lynch-Bages non-blind vertical. Drink now. (Web-2007)
