Estate Notes

Château Lynch-Bages 1990 is simply stunning, rated 99 points by Robert Parker. One of the finest wines ever from Lynch-Bages.

Lynch-Bages, with a succession of fine vintages since 1981, has justifiably built up a solid reputation based on deeply concentrated, classically styled wines.

The estate has been in the Cazes family for the last 70 years, and under the current proprietor, Jean-Michel Cazes, it has risen to international fame. A proud, gregarious man, Jean-Michel has constantly championed the wines of Lynch-Bages, Pauillac and Bordeaux. So much so, that President Chirac bestowed upon him the country’s highest decoration – a Knighthood in the Legion of Honour.

Reviews

"This magnificent Lynch Bages has been drinking well since the day it was released and it continues to go from strength to strength. The biggest, richest, fullest-bodied Lynch Bages until the 2000, the fully mature 1990 exhibits an unbelievably explosive nose of black currants, cedarwood, herbs and spice. The majestic, classically Bordeaux aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, rich, intense wine with superb purity as well as thrilling levels of fruit, glycerin and sweetness. This beauty should continue to provide immense pleasure over the next 15+ years." eRobertParker.com

"Very dark ruby color, still almost black. Superripe fruit aromas, with currants, prunes and spices. Full-bodied, with layers of fruit and velvety tannins. It goes on and on. Very polished Lynch-Bages." Wine Spectator
