A disappointment, a 11 year old LB should perform better! Clearly beyond its peak, no autumn tones but more port-ish with beginning ruby colour, quite strong fruit, caramel, middle length. Fortunately I bought it in 2008 when the LB:s were affordable, think I paid 35 euro.

(Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac) Pure and stony fruit on the nose of this wine, with classic blackcurrant tones and a polished stone-pebble character mingling with notes of exotic fruits and toasty oak. The same style is found on the palate; elegantly polished forest fruits, nicely covered structure, good ripe tannins and a creamy, broad, mouth-filling finish. Very good indeed.
(Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac) An appealing nose, exotically spiced, with good depth of character. Rather svelte tannins early on to say the least, and a nicely composed, creamy texture. Through the midpalate seems firmer, more traditional, although they are well covered. This could be excellent, but will need to lie in the cellar for some time.
