Fine Wine - Chateau Lynch-Bages Vertical 1982-2009

Fine Wine - Chateau Lynch-Bages Vertical 1982-2009

In this fantastic vertical tasting we'll discover 8 stunning vintages of the 5th growth Grand Cru Classe, Chateau Lynch-Bages. From the mature and developing 1998 vintage through to 2009 the tasting will also include the exceptional 2005. Often described as a poor man's Mouton, Lynch-Bages can be surprisingly soft and approachable when young. However, when fully mature, it develops a succulent richness and a heavenly bouquet of minty blackcurrants and cigar boxes. As Oz Clarke says "Lynch Bages is impressive at five years, beautiful at ten years and irresistible at twenty."

Chateau Lynch-Bages is one of the best-known Médoc estates and has always had a particularly strong following on this side of the English Channel. Since 1973 it has been owned by the enigmatic Jean-Michel Cazes and is now run by his son, Jean-Charles. The vineyards are superbly sited on a plateau west of Pauillac town, in the small village of Bages. The 90 hectares of vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 15%, Cabernet Franc 10%) lie on deep gravel beds over limestone.
