K&L Notes

93-95 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Lynch-Bages was picked from September 19, the Cabernet starting six days later and continuing until October 9, and matured for 18 months in 75% new oak. It has a charming, pure bouquet of black cherries, blueberry, violet and iris petals, almost Margaux-like in style. The medium-bodied palate is quite dense and grippy, offering slightly grainy tannins, moderate acidity and a powerful, saline finish. It is a little monolithic when compared to, say, the outstanding 2016, although I appreciate its length and it should age well in bottle. It just needs to muster a bit more charm, and maybe that will appear once in bottle. I will remain prudent with my score for now." (11/2019)

    Continued excellence from the Cazes family! Dark cherries, blackberries, minerally graphite, cedar and licorice on the nose, with a rich velvety texture on the palate, held up structurally by powerful tannins and balancing acidity. No doubt this will go down a great vintage for Lynch Bages.

    The aromatics of this great Lynch Bages have everything one dreams about in a Pauillac; the classic lead pencil minerality, the clean, perfectly ripe (not overripe!) cassis fruit, the powerfully built tannic structure and the refreshing acidity. A masterful wine with a finish that won't quit, this is a fantastic bottle for the long term in the cellar.
    Drink from 2033 to 2078

    Wild blackberry, huckleberry, wet slate and graphite are teased from this as it slowly unfolds with air. This is sleek, intense and super concentrated with tons of ripe fruit along with spice and herb in a monster mid-palate that opens very slowly. There is tremendous grip to the super sweet tannins and loads of mineral on the powerful finish.
