Classified Growth Bordeaux Chateau Lynch Bages has for decades performed well beyond its Fifth Growth status. Each vintage it stands among the very best Bordeaux reds in quality. And why not, with ideal terroir in the elite village of Pauillac this Chateau has everything going for it. In the outstanding 2010 vintage, they produced yet another extraordinary wine, 95+ scores all around. Robert Parker scored it 96 points saying “The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with smoke, graphite and spring flowers. It is a massive Lynch Bages, full-bodied and very 1989-ish, with notable power, loads of tannin, and extraordinary concentration and precision.
