1990 Chateau Lynch-Bages - 99 Pts!
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 99 RP - 1990 Chateau Lynch-Bages Bordeaux - 97 Pts! This wine has provided terrific drinking since it was bottled. It may turn out to be a vintage such as 1982 which never shut down. The dark plum/purple color reveals some lightening at the edge. A big sweet plum licorice beef blood and jammy cassis-scented bouquet with smoked herbs and new wood in the background soars from the glass. Enjoyable and accessible this low acid concentrated velvety-textured wine continues to offer sumptuous drinking. It is one of my favorite Lynch Bages vintages to drink now although it will be even more stunning in 10-15 years. RP
