1982 Château Lynch-Bages

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Sunday, September 18, 2011 - Andrew's 27th Birthday (Dave's House): Another exceptional looking bottle with a fill level in to the neck. Decanted for sediment and served immediately. Dark purple in colour, with some bricking. Note quite as youthful as the Ducru Beaucaillou that preceded it, but still in wonderful shape. The nose showed incredible purity, giving way to notes of coffee, cedar, cigar, earth, currants, dark fruits, herbs and spice. The palate offered tastes of dark red fruits, spice and earthiness, with a slight saline taste. Fully resolved tannin, with an excellent, long savory finish that coats the mouth.
