    September 20, 2019 - Top shoulder fill and cork fully saturated. Wine stil in good shape, though. Tense dark brambly fruit with notes of tar and licorice. Black tea and loam. Long intense finish.

    September 20, 2019 - Absolutely sublime. Upon popping the cork the bouquet filled the room with notes of sweet black fruit, cigar box, and truffle. Decanted for 3 hours. The palate was exquisite...texturally so elegant, and flavours are so complex with plenty of dark fruit, but also those tertiary earth elements. At 30 years, this has so much life to it...will drink well for many years. This shows why it pays to let fine bordeaux reach maturity...nectar of the Gods here.

    September 20, 2019 - Superb with dark fruit, graphite, pencil shaving, some leather notes and length that lingered

    August 25, 2019 - Similar to my note April last year, 1989 Lynch Bages is a textbook wine, super classic - offered nice opulent dark fruits, strong minerals, light cedar, modest smoke, shaved pencil, peppr spices, and good acidity, very complex structure and finish was very long and lingering.

    August 10, 2019 - Consistent with previous note. This wine must be decanted for at least 2 hours before serving.
