"97+ Points. Truly, a legendary Lynch Bages!"--RobertParker.com
Description

While the wine press is all agog at this wine, Let's remind everyone that Lynch- Bages has been far exceeding its 5th Growth status for over a half-century.  All keen observers of Bordeaux realize that if there were to be a new classification, Lynch-Bages would surely rank as a Second-Growth.  Now about this vintage:  yes, it's big, dark and viscous.  Still, 6 years in when last tasted, it is massive in the mouth, with great aromatics and dense flavors.  Drunk now, it demands a thick steak.  What will happen over time in the cellar?  Will it gain finesse in 20 or 30 years?  It's impossible to say.

"97+ Points. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Lynch Bages comes charging out of the gate with pronounced cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and menthol notions, backed up by scents of garrigue, tilled soil and a waft of tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fantastically concentrated, the generous fruit is superbly framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins with tons of pepper, cinnamon and cloves layers coming through on the finish. Truly, a legendary Lynch Bages!"
