Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 95-97/100
The 2022 Lynch-Bages shows all the classic Lynch layers, but dialed up to
the maximum. Rich, deep and explosive, the 2022 packs tremendous
punch. Sweet dark cherry, spice, leather, menthol, licorice, plum and
mocha all open with time in the glass. The tannins are imposing, and yet
there is more than enough fruit to balance things out, at least to some
degree. I expect the 2022 will need a decade to shed some of its tannin,
but it is formidable, even in the early going. Impressive.
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 93-96/100
One of the vintage’s most powerful, muscular wines is the 2022 Lynch-Bages, a full-bodied, broad-shouldered Pauillac that unfurls in the glass with aromas of cassis, cherries, mint, pencil shavings and petroleum jelly, framed by nicely integrated new oak. Liberally extracted, its deep core of fruit is underpinned by an imposing chassis of rich, powdery tannin and lively acids. Always rather forbidding from barrel, Lynch Bages always seems to come together in bottle, and the 2022 has the makings of another success for this address.
