A very successful effort for the vintage, this hedonistically-styled Lynch Bages delivers copious quantities of ripe, fat, black currant fruit intermixed with sweet oak. Low acidity combined with high PH results in a chewy, fleshy, up-front wine that will make many friends when it is released in a year and a half. The color is a healthy dark purple, and the wine is perfumed, expansive, round, and crammed with black fruit. The glycerin level is high, the tannin sweet and unaggressive, and the overall style provides considerable satisfaction and thrills. If this wine takes on more weight and adds a nuance or two of complexity, look for it to merit an outstanding rating when released.
Anticipated maturity : 2000-2002.
