Chateau Lynch Bages – Pauillac 2016

RM1,015.0

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Lynch Bages comes charging out of the gate with pronounced cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and menthol notions, backed up by scents of garrigue, tilled soil and a waft of tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fantastically concentrated, the generous fruit is superbly framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins with tons of pepper, cinnamon and cloves layers coming through on the finish. Truly, a legendary Lynch Bages!

Description

Chateau Lynch-Bages takes its name from Thomas Lynch, a Bordeaux merchant of Irish heritage who owned the property from 1749 to 1824. Lynch established an early tradition of quality which resulted in the chateau being listed as a fifth growth in the 1855 Classification. In the mid-20th century the reputation of Lynch-Bages skyrocketed following a series of excellent vintages from 1945 onwards, proving particularly popular with British drinkers and collectors.

The chateau’s 90 hectares of vineyards are set around the village of Bages in the south-west of the town of Pauillac and are planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Their vines have an average age of 30 years with some as old as 60 years and are planted on gravel and limestone soils which help to produce intense, muscular wines with exceptional ageability.
Today the chateau is one of the Medoc’s best known producers, crafting a firm, well-structured grand vin which can age for decades. In the words of famed wine critic Oz Clarke: “Lynch Bages is impressive at five years, beautiful at ten years and irresistible at twenty.” The approachability of Lynch-Bages when young combined with its enchanting bouquet when mature is one of the key reasons for the grand vin’s global success in recent years.
