2000 Château Lynch-Bages

Community Tasting Note


95 Points

Friday, September 21, 2012 - Tight, currently this wine demands more time, if you can't wait, give it a few hours of air, and some serious efforts at swirling, else you'll miss the tobacco, spice, cedar wood, cassis and earthy nose. Powerful, full bodied and filled with layers of ripe, fresh, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine fills our mouth with flavor and ripe tannins. I'll try another bottle in 2015, but I imagine it will not kick into high gear until 2020. It's a good thing time flies.
