A charming, lush, round, generous Lynch Bages, the 1999 offers plenty of sweet black currant fruit, damp earth, licorice, cedarwood and spicy herb-like characteristics. Medium-bodied, savory and broad in the mouth with no hard edges, this fully mature effort is a somewhat underrated vintage for this estate. Enjoy it over the next decade.
The sexiest, most succulent effort since the hedonistic fruit bomb produced in 1990.
Berry and tobacco aromas, with hints of spice. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Slightly one-dimensional, but a good wine. Not a great Lynch but very good. Best after 2004. 35000 cases made.
Lots of sweet cassis scent, while on the palate this Lynch Bages is more charming than usual, with mid-weight, high-unction fruit.
