An incredibly dense yet sophisticated wine which is packed full of rich flavours. Enticing red cherry and plum aromas are followed by layers of ripe blackcurrant and cassis fruit with notes of tobacco and exotic spices. Beautifully textured tannins blend seamlessly with the deep flavours and the fresh acidity. An outstanding success. Drink 2020 - 2038
Reviews & Scores
Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London and later at the chateau. The Lynch Bages 2010 has gone back into its shell since I tasted it out of barrel. It has very fine precision and comes across as understated and poised, although I hope it develops more vigour and fruit penetration. The palate is dense and focused, with light graphite notes infusing the black fruit and a keen thread of acidity lending it fine tension towards the finish. It just needs a little more attack, but that should develop with time. Tasted November 2012.
