Chateau Lynsolence 2006
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Another St.-Emilion garagiste estate, this 6.2-acre vineyard, which abuts some of the Valandraud and Monbousquet parcels, has outstanding potential. The opaque purple-hued 2006 Lynsolence reveals a big, sweet kiss of kirsch liqueur, black fruits, licorice, smoke, and crushed rock-like aromas. Dense, deep, and full-bodied with moderate tannin and impressive equilibrium, proprietor Denis Barraud has consistently produced a wine that transcends his terroir. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
