Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac 2008
|France, Bordeaux, Pauillac
In the powerful style of Lynch-Bages, although perhaps less exuberant than usual. Instead the concentration comes from juicy fruit, which gives it the a softer quality. Even so, it still has solid tannins, dense texture and always the promise of good aging.
Very solid, with a super beam of dark currant, tobacco and iron pushed by charcoal, melted fig and cocoa notes. This has a nicely rounded feel, but there's plenty of grip in reserve. Best from 2013 through 2018. 30,500 cases made.
