Ch Lynch Bages 2021
2e Grand Cru Classé
€ 123.54/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – Neil Martin – 94-96/100
The 2021 Lynch-Bages, picked at 34hL/ha and matured in 75% new oak for
a planned 18 months, has an outstanding bouquet, beautifully-defined
and sensual, a mixture of black and blueberry fruit, very fragrant. The
palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, good body and density,
quite precise with a tensile finish. This fans out nicely on the finish. A very
classy Lynch Bages with echoes of Jean-Michel Cazes’ classics from the late
eighties. 13.14% alcohol.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 93-95/100
The second vintage vinified in the Caze family’s new winery, the 2021 Lynch-Bages unwinds in the glass with aromas of minty cassis, sweet berries, loamy soil, black truffle and cigar wrapper, framed by nicely integrated new oak. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and muscular, it’s a serious, layered, powerful, youthfully structured wine that will come together beautifully with maturation in barrel.
