這支2010 Lynch Bages絕對是一支上佳的酒。香氣帶有黑加侖子甜酒的甜美感覺。亦有花卉的感覺。酒體濃厚而帶力量,亦有單寧感覺,以及極為集中及仔細。這酒適宜陳年5-6年飲用。

「此中度酒體的2011年,顏色是深紅寶石/紫色,香氣像黑醋栗利口酒,慷慨、集中、造功出色,中至飽滿酒體,單寧幼滑。可以3至4年內享用,也能窖藏至少15年。」 - Robert Parker

The wine of Château Lynch-Bages is part of the lineage of the great Pauillac wines. Blended mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon, it combines structure and finesse, elegance and longevity. It is further distinguished by its opulence. Generous right from its youth, it develops more flavours and greater complexity as it matures.

The style of the wines has refined over the years, gaining suppleness and softness, whilst their consistency has been established over time. Then as now, Château Lynch-Bages has been characterised by its extraordinary qualitative homogeneity. Powerful, elegant and open, vintage after vintage, the wine has acquired greater accuracy, adding distinction to the hedonistic character that made its reputation.

The year began with a mild winter which brought an adequate amount of rain, and there followed a relatively unremarkable spring in which flowering progressed smoothly and was all finished by May. The summer was extremely warm with temperature frequently exceeding 30°C throughout June, July and August. The fruit began to change colour somewhat earlier than usual, a response to the warmth of the vintage.

Tasting Notes:
2010 Vintage (Robert Parker's rating: 96 points):
The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with smoke, graphite and spring flowers. It is a massive Lynch Bages, full-bodied and very 1989-ish, with notable power, loads of tannin, and extraordinary concentration and precision. This is not a Lynch Bages to drink in its exuberant youth, but one to hold on to for 5-6 years and drink over the following three decades.

2011 Vintage (Robert Parker's rating: 90 points): 
After two powerful, sunny vintages, 2011 is outstanding for its display of well ripened fruit, fine, plump tannins, and a good freshness to ensure classic balance.
'The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage.' - Robert Parker

2014 Vintage (Robert Parker's rating: 92 points):
It eventually opens up with a mixture of red and black fruit, cedar and tobacco, gaining more harmony and intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite linear and focused at the moment, precise if just needing a little more body and depth to evolve on the straight-laced finish. Give this Pauillac 4-5 years in bottle and it is likely to repay you.

2015 Vintage (Robert Parker's rating: 92+ points): 
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Lynch Bages offers up crushed black berries, black cherries and dried herbs with an earthy undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate is firm and taut with lively fruit and a chewy finish.
