Bell pepper, cigar box, red as well as black currant notes, dusty, earthy tannins, and a medium-bodied personality make for a good but uninspiring effort. Drink the 2002 over the next 5-10 years.
A classic offering possessing the weight of the 1999, but without that vintage’s charm, this structured, tannic 2002 offers a dense ruby/purple color, medium to full body, and the tell-tale Lynch Bages black currant and earthy nose. There is good power on the attack, mid-palate, and finish. It will need 2-3 years of cellaring, and should age nicely for 12-15 years. If more texture and length develop with bottle age (and they should), this wine will merit an outstanding score. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020
Tasted blind at Farr's 2002 Bordeaux tasting. This marks a better showing for Lynch Bages, this bottle retaining the austere, stoic façade but behind it more evidence of blueberry, iodine and violets. Good lift with an undercurrent of sous-bois. Very ripe entry, chewy tannins, blackberry, boysenberry and graphite leading to a dense, dry introverted finish. Tasted October 2009.
Drink 2011-21 Hint of tobacco. Interesting! Juicy. Very appetising and very Pauillac.
