Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

$299

The 1970 Lynch-Bages remains a massive, inky-colored wine with gobs of blackcurrant, cedary, ground beef, leathery flavors and aromas. This huge, ponderous wine is still youthfully powerful, but the ferocious tannins are melting away... Robert Parker

1970. Past its prime. Pleasant but nothing more. For a Lynch Bages I was expecting more. Nothing like the 1959 or 1961 vintages.

This 1970 was a 9.4 to us! Full bodied and we think it could last another 10 years!

This was a gift from a friend. It was laying in a closet at ambient room temp for 30-odd years, so I was nervous to open it, but it was perfect. So complex and fragrant. Acid and tannin still seemingly youthful. Wow!
