1982 Château Lynch-Bages

Community Tasting Note


92 Points

Thursday, November 6, 2008 - White Truffle Dinner (Chez Patrick Sun Street, Hong Kong): Deep purple colour, translucent with no bricking. A "wow!" nose of warm cedar forests, graphite, a bit of cigar box and hints of newly sharpened pencils. Extremely rich and deep, purity of fruit, some black liquorice, pronounced sweetness, and incredibly round and integrated oak and acidity. Very impressive indeed. Good length. Noticeably higher acidity than the 1982 Pichon.
