1985 Chateau Lynch Bages Bordeaux - 95 Pts - Wine of The Year!
The Power and elegance of a great Pauillac.........

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.

Outstandingly consistent quality............

The estate’s reputation as a top quality wine producer took off in 1945 after a series of exceptional vintages. Since then, Lynch-Bages has continued to produce excellent wines, even during years considered difficult in the Bordeaux region. The wine’s deep colour and tannic backbone have become part of its signature style. Jean-Michel Cazes, grandson of Jean-Charles, has worked hard to develop and refine the wine’s supple and smooth structure over the years. Vintage after vintage, the estate’s precise and excellent winemaking techniques have served to firmly establish Lynch-Bages reputation for consistent quality.

Rating 95 RP - 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
