1982 Château Lynch-Bages

Community Tasting Note


100 Points

Friday, December 16, 2005 - ruby red, vibrant and mysterious. sipped minutes after decanting, it was closed, amd yet agrfessively showed its strength with a rich and forboding nose. Powerful. through the evening, it softened, mellowed, and displayed wonderful balance, and a great finish. teasingly soft and supple, with hints of leather and cloves, but warm, soft cherries and black currants added to a very round experience. at the end of the glass, perhaps 3 hours after opening and decanting, it was still robust, yet grand and elegant. With Gary and Dory at Mavro, 12 /16/05
