Classified as a 5eme Cru Classe. Daring, innovative and with a reputation for often being the last to harvest, Jean-Charles Cazes defined the style of Lynch-Bages in the 1930's. The wine's distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac's greatest. It combines structure, finesse and elegance, offering generous aromas in its youth and developing deeper complexities with bottle age. Vintage after vintage, the estate's precise and excellent winemaking techniques have served to firmly establish Lynch-Bages reputation for consistent quality.

Near opaque in the glass, the nose offers notes of ripe berry, currant, cassis and toast as well as a mineral character. A cool sense of ripeness pervades the palate. A Pauillac with effortless, silky, intense berry fruit, fine weave of fully ripe tannins and welcome vibrancy. Shows fine concentration and a layered sense of depth. Precise and well poised, with ample richness and fine, lingering minerality. Very fine and harmonious, notably so in the context of this difficult vintage.
