    (Chateau Lynch-Bages (Pauillac)) An exotic, spiced nose, showing some barrel influence of course but there is undeniably a wealth of ripe fruit here, with rich, deep, savoury and complex nuances. The palate is beautiful and truly very convincing. There is an elegant substance and flesh, and yet a lifted delicacy to it all, with the fine-boned presence of tannin together with fresh acidity. The finish is savoury, long and intricate. A very convincing vintage for Lynch-Bages, and one of the best showings at two years of age that I can recall in recent years. Delicious style and superb potential.

    (Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac) A deep and glossy appearance, with a crimson-blue rim. Very dark fruit on the nose, dark berries, and forest fruits, all with a sweet and slightly gritty character. On the palate a very sweet depth of fruit to match, creamed forest berries, velvety tannins, with lots of grip and spice. The acidity takes a backseat here, and overall it seems very open and approachable now. All the same, very good.
