Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

9.497 ratings on Delectable

This is another Lynch Bages that has never gone through an awkward, disjointed stage where it completely shut down. The color remains a dense ruby with some lightening at the edge. Thick, juicy, succulent notes of creme de cassis intermixed with dried herbs, vanillin, minerals, and anise leap from the glass. Fleshy and full-bodied, with the vintage's voluptuous texture and low acid, fruit/glycerin-dominated flavors well-displayed in its full-bodied personality, this wine tastes young, but is also ready to drink. Anticipated maturity: now-2015. Robert Parker

Decanted and drank over 2 hours. So much evolution in the glass. Ripe, weighty mid palate. Couldn't really be any better.

Still showing strong, think it shows why this producer has such prestige, as I've had many an '82 that has let me down...

Had the '85 the other day, this is a beautiful bottle yes, but I think the '85 out performs it, there's a classic '82 richness to it, but the fruit is starting to fade away a little.

Epic! Right in the sweet spot! absolute textbook G.C.C. that is perfect proof the 1855 is a joke! I sincerely hope it never gains the Unesco status some privileged Bordelais estates are hoping for, if this is considered 'fifth league'. Champagne & Burgundy bravo however! Truly deserving of their hard-fought Unesco world heritage status.
