2000 Château Lynch-Bages

Community Tasting Note


95 Points

Thursday, January 15, 2009 - Deeply colored with notes of cassis, leather and black fruit, the wine was already starting to show well. Very concentrated and full bodied. On the palate, the wine delivered a lush, powerful feeling, similar to the 90, but with more power. The finish was long, clean and pure. Tasting this made me happy knowing I had a case laid down in the cellar. 5-10 more years of bottle age will really add a lot to the wine. However, for Lynch Bages, this is very precocious and will deliver a lot of pleasure early in life.
