1985 Chateau Lynch Bages Bordeaux - 95 Pts - Wine of The Year!
I have had great and less great bottles of this vintage over the years. The 1985 was the magazine's Wine of the Year in 1988. Today it shows loads of fruit, with blackberry, licorice and fresh herb character. Full, round and velvety. Long and delicious.--Lynch-Bages non-blind vertical. WS The 1985 has been totally disarming seductive and sexy since birth. Its corpulence medium to full-bodied personality low acidity attractive silkiness and copious quantities of herb-tinged cassis fruit have always made this wine a winner. It is beginning to display a few signs that it is at its peak of maturity and will not get any better. In fact it might be best consumed over the next 5-10 years. As it sat in the glass the 1985 faded more than any other vintage but its immense up-front pleasure cannot be denied. This is a wine to decant right before serving and not to linger over. It is a beautiful elegant style of Lynch Bages. It is sure to please both connoisseurs and neophytes. RP
