The 09 with our 4th course, Cheese w/ Fruits & Nuts. The 09 is so soft & easier to drink young but, I won’t open mine for another 10 years. Loads of dark cassis. Ripe; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries & blue fruit hues. Leathery, dark chocolate, dry stones, crushed limestone, cedar, dark but lighter graphite, medium spice, clove, dry herbs, dark dry soil, dry stems, scorched earth and withering dark florals. The structure, tension, length are there screaming to be magnificent. The well balanced finish is very good now but all I can think about is it in another 15 years plus.

Probably the deepest and darkest fruit on the nose of a wine that I have ever had. Could get lost in this for hours.

Red currant and plum with cedar, a bit of new leather, and crushed rocks. Concentrated fruit and minerality on the palate. Looking forward to revisiting in the years to come.

Lynch Bages is one of my favourite wines & clearly it’s too young to open this 98 pointer 09 but I’ve found a stash @ £120 so wanted to unleash a bottle for the community
