Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
98

Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense of heaviness or fatigue. This exquisite Lynch Bages should drink well for 30+ years.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #199, Feb 2012)

96 - The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 Lynch Bages is boldly scented of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and baked plums with chocolate box, incense and underbrush suggestions plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, taut and well sustained in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy texture and a lively backbone lifting the black fruit core to a nice long finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 2019

The 2009 Lynch-Bages has an intense bouquet which is more forward than Grand Puy Lacoste, albeit without the same complexity. Layers of blackberry, bilberry, brine and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, slightly lower in acidity than the 2010 Lynch Bages, dense and quite sinewy towards the finish. It might miss the class of its peers but you cannot help but admire the brawn underneath its aristocratic coat. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. - vinous.com, March 2019

Michael Schuster
17.5

[76CS/18M/4CF/2PV] Dense, crisp, minerally, ripe red and blackcurrant fruit on the nose, complex and aromatic; rich, compact wine, firm in tannin, firm in acidity round a juicily ripe, red and blackcurrant fruit, pure, taut, firmer style within the vintage; long and juicy and subtle within the Pauillac muscle, but without coarseness, and with fine aromatic and fruit length. Here again that fine, concentrated fruit core of the best 2009's. A fine, fairly long term Lynch Bages. 2022-40

James Suckling
96

A powerful and ripe wine with a wide-screen personality, this makes a very bold statement without becoming a jot heavy. Serious tannins at the long finish suggest this has long-term aging potential. Drink now with a big steak or hold. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019) - Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com, March 2019
