Lynch-Bages-Pauillac-2005

Lynch-Bages, (Pauillac), 2005

Hailed by Chateau Lynch-Bages as “one of our greatest vintages of recent decades”, the 2005 Pauillac Grand Cru Classe is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot that was aged for 15 months in French oak (80% new). Full bodied, with great complexity, well structured tannins and a long finish.

“As one might suspect, the dense purple-hued 2005 is still tannic, firm and young, with concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit, beautiful ripeness, a full-bodied mouthfeel and undeniable youthfulness. Tasting like a 2-3 year old wine rather one that has passed its sixth birthday, it is potentially one of the longest lived Lynch Bages since the remarkable 1989 and 2000.” – Wine Advocate (94+ Points)
