Chateau Lynch Bages 2002
|Brand||Chateau Lynch Bages|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
The 2002 has turned out lighter and more herbaceous than I would have guessed. This medium-bodied wine reveals a dark ruby/purple-tinged color, and hints of cedar wood and tobacco in an evolved aromatic display which also includes herbs and black currants. Attractive in a superficial way, there is some tannin, but also a softness and charm. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (91)
Aromas of currant bush, berries and sweet tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with medium tannins and a long finish. Lovely texture to this wine.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
