Tasting Notes and Scores

A dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by reticent, restrained aromatics suggesting earth, herbs and subtle fruit. The wine hits the palate with a brutal, tannic overlay, but behind that are impressive levels of black and red fruits. As is the case with many 1995s, the wine’s structural components still dominate, which makes one wonder if these cuvees will ever shed enough tannin to be charming and enjoyable to drink. Certainly depth, weight and richness are all present, but the tannins remain elevated and somewhat foreboding.

Ex-cellar bottle tasted blind at the Lynch Bages vertical. Much more closed on the nose with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow, a touch of liquorice and Asian spice. The palate is full-bodied, firm tannins, good concentration, nice tension, although much more linear than I was expecting. Does not have the flair I was expecting although I admire its peppery, irony finish. Good depth of flavour, still a little unresolved. Tasted September 2009.
