  • i was going to splurge for Father's Day, but good fortune brought some wine drinking friends to the house the day before. We cooked up some filets (very nice) and had this. This is a great example of Bordeaux which I guess is why Lynch Bages is so valued by wine enthusiasts. Opened the bottle two hours before drinking, decanted using a vinum and could tell immediately that this was going to be a nice wine. The nose was deep with fruit, dried berries and a bit of earth. The first taste two hours later was smooth, tannins were soft, acid/fruit balance was great and the finish was long and satisfying, giving nice fruit to the end. I would think this wine will be superb for at least 10 more years, and may improve a bit. However it is a great wine right now.

  • Time to Taste 2000 Bordeaux (R&D's): Black fruit and floral notes with a hint of TCA lurking underneath. The first sip features currants, cassis and florals with a lengthy finish. Sadly, the TCA became more apparent as the night wore on. What a shame as there really was some nice fruit underneath.

  • Doft av blöt tobak, väldigt djup doft, ciggarlåda, stall och ganska rökig. Mörk frukt, rätt balancerad trots sin ungdom.

    Smak av läder syrlig frukt, röda vinbär, höstskog och mull.
    Riktigt riktigt bra!
    verkligen min typ av vin. skrev 98-100 poäng här tidigt på kvällen på doften och aningen lägre på smaken. Ett mästervin

  • En väldigt elegant och komplex Bordeaux i den lite lättare stilen. Mogen mörk och röd frukt, läder, häststall, svampskog, ceder, blyerts och tobak. Väldigt balanserat och elegant med början till första mognadstoner. Men är självklart ett ungt vin med massor av år framför sig.

    (Lynch Bages) This was very very closed on the nose. I actually didn't smell anything. I swirled and swirled but could not really coax anything. It was the end of the bottle too. The palate was tight but I got more out of that than the nose. Somewhat fleshy with dark concentrated fruit, nice acids and some pretty clamby tannins. The fruit though extended on the finish. It was sweet, classy and very nice. Do not open for at least five years.

    (Lynch Bages) This was completely closed down. Hint of earth and mineral on the pretty ungiving nose. Dense and ripe with great fruit. Long, long, long but also tannic, tannic, tannic. Incredible underlying material but very tough to taste today.
