Decanted about 3-4 hours before tasting. What a lovely wine. It seems ridiculous to say this but I think this needs more time in the bottle. The color is bright and lively and dense, with only slight bricking. Nice complex nose of roasted root vegetables, leather, red fruits, and other lovely aromas. The palate is smooth, rich and complex – rounded red fruits (currants), plums, leather, pencil lead. The finish is pretty long, though there is a very slight tartness or bitterness. Still some strong tannins, suggesting this will last for the long haul. This just tastes young and even a bit closed to me. Notwithstanding, we finished the bottle in one night….. 94+
Decanted and pour back into the rinsed bottle two hours before re-opening. Improved and opened up over the next two hours. Classic Lynch Bages “dust”, bright red fruit and savory spice. Hard to believe this was almost 27 years’ old, tasted very young and fresh – simply stunning.
