Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

As for the 2005 Lynch-Bages, it is a sexy, surprisingly soft and accessible style of wine, with a deep ruby/purple color, loads of crème de cassis, cedar wood and forest floor notes, medium to full body, ripe tannin and a long, fleshy finish. Drink it over the next 15+ years.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #219, Jun 2015)

Neal Martin

The Château Lynch Bages 2005 has an enthralling graphite and cedar scented bouquet, like a young cousin of the Grand Puy Lacoste. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, one of the most feminine and elegant Lynch Bages in recent years with a lightness of touch on the finish. That is not to say it lacks fruit intensity, but the balance is so assured that is just seems to glide over the mouth. Stylish, assured and meticulous winemaking here.

The Lynch Bages 2005 is crisp and full of guile on the nose, aloof at first, but then opening up like a old friend who suddenly realizes who you are. Blackberry, cedar and here, just a suggestion of Hoi Sin sauce. The palate is full-bodied and very well structured with firm backbone. Like previous bottles, it is sulky at first but it soon open up and the tannins are more resolved towards the finish that is sweet and seductive. Excellent. Tasted November 2011.

Michael Schuster

Dark, narrow rimmed red; fine, fresh, cedar and ripe red fruit bouquet; rich, generous, fleshy wine with a lively acidity and fine, firm tannin; deep, sweet and spicy to taste, gently gravelly, long and sapid and juicy across the palate and with great length of aftertaste; very satisfying already with so much fruit and generosity, if still on the tannic side. 2018-40
