The 1989 has taken forever to shed its formidable tannins, but what a great vintage of Lynch Bages! I would rank it at the top of the pyramid...extraordinary concentration and undeniable aging potential. Its dense purple color reveals a slight lightening at the edge and the stunning bouquet offers classic notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, oak and graphite. Powerful and rich...It should prove to be a 50 year wine. Robert Parker

Flora birth year. Mother's Day dinner! Took a bit to open up but remains one of my fav BDX. Truly still could go for decades.

What a powerhouse. Youthful cassis fruit, sweet tobacco, graphite. Wow.

Umm, was not expecting to taste this tonight. Let me try to do justice with notes. Beautiful dark ruby core that flows out to a lighter ruby rim with highlights of an light orange/salmon color. Watery rim shows the age of this one (1989). The nose is earthy, wet leaves and forest floor and mushrooms. The red fruit shows freshness and just an ample amount of juicy red. The oak aging shows up after, vanilla and clove and sweet spice. Good lord. Now to taste... Just found out this was opened last night and oh my god is it still fresh. The red fruit shines brighter here, backed by the earth in a neat little turnabout from the nose. Tannins are still present but getting suuuuper silky, and leads me to believe this 27 year old wine can get BETTER. The finish is still in my mouth a minute later. There's amazing complexity to this wine. I don't know what I did to earn this today, but I'm glad I did.
