2012 Ch. Lynch Bages, Pauillac

Ch. Lynch Bages, Pauillac
One of our all-time favourite properties, Ch. Lynch-Bages has not only has been playing out of its skin since 2006, but when you are lucky enough to actually drink a fully mature vintage, it makes you purr like a kitten. The 2012, is certainly not a kitten though, more of a brooding lioness showing real volume, weight and substance that few can match. The nose has dark fruits, cassis and licorice whilst the palate exudes rich, silky and sublime density, sweetness and glycerol. The expression and volume build in the mouth with freshness, focus and texture followed by a bright and lifting finish. Unquestionably one of the weightier wines of the week, it is continually expressive onto the finish where an explosion of flavours takes over as if roaring to all in the Savannah!

Rich dense colour, big meaty wine with good florality as well as rich fruit, a big wine, very ripe for this vintage.

Blackish purple. Lots of minerals on the nose. Tight and taut and almost painfully tart but there is energy here certainly!

Ch. Lynch Bages, Pauillac
Some of Lynch Bages's tell-tale cedary, black currant, earth and spice characteristics are present in the 2012's moderately intense bouquet. This wine exhibits good purity, a healthy dark ruby/purple color and medium body. There is a slight deficiency in the mid-palate, but it recovers sufficiently and offers up a decent finish that tails off ever so slightly. This good to excellent wine could use more fat and charm in the mid-section. Cellar it for a couple of years and drink it over the following 12-14 years.

Pure and racy, delivering a core of violet, cassis and cherry, well-framed by a sleek, iron-coated structure. Features a long, taut, focused finish. Shows the austerity of the vintage, but this remains long and pure, with fine cut.
