1996 Château Lynch-Bages

Community Tasting Note


95 Points

Friday, February 23, 2007 - Seattle Tasting Group does Pauillac (Seattle, WA): Wow, the most impressive wine of the night to this point. This didn't get much air, just a quick double-decant about 2 hours before service. It definitely started out a bit reticent but then opened to show cassis, charcoal and menthol. Mmm, this has a rich mid-palate, gorgeously balanced, taut, young, a bowl of cherries. Impeccable. This finishes out beautifully. Fantastic showing for a terrific young wine!
