    July 17, 2017 - In excellent shape, silky, smooth, smokey, medium body, still some dark fruit and soft leather; tannins resolving but still present; great with porterhouse steak.

    July 13, 2017 - Farewell Filippo, Il Duomo table (La Trompette, London): Deep ruby with a splodge of garnet. Rich nose but a touch of green on the nose in an 85 rather than 89 mould. Fresh. Sweet-fruited with a touch of green pepper. Sweet, long, cedary. Classic left bank claret. Really super. *****

    July 9, 2017 - Had the privilege of tasting this at a party - tasted it too late into the session after far too many Volnay and VR's - a guest who jumped straight to the Lynch Bages (and who left early) was very pleased. In short, as with other recent reviews, plenty of time left for this classic. Will try again in a few years after this beaute is 30+

    July 6, 2017 - Krug and Dom Perignon Dinner, with Bonus Wines (The Loyalist - Chicago IL): Great aromatic start with black plum and currant, rich without seeming too ripe. Cigarbox and cassis notes as well. Great nose is followed by good flavors that are quite similar and enticingly complex, just perhaps not quite as long as a few great bottles from the past few years, since this wine has emerged from its long (15+ year?) post-release dormancy.
