Chateau Lynch Bages 2005
€ 175,45 (incl. Vat)
|Brand||Chateau Lynch Bages|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
As one might suspect, the dense purple-hued 2005 is still tannic, firm and young, with concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit, beautiful ripeness, a full-bodied mouthfeel and undeniable youthfulness. Tasting like a 2-3 year old wine rather one that has passed its sixth birthday, it is potentially one of the longest lived Lynch Bages since the remarkable 1989 and 2000.
Displays very beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry and dark chocolate, with a hint of coffee. Full-bodied, with a tightly wound palate of ripe tannins. Long and caressing.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
