Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

9.384 ratings on Delectable
$179

In the flight of young wines, with all the vintages of the nineties represented, this wine stood out for its absolute purity of creme de cassis, ripe fruit, medium to full body, high tannin, wonderful sweetness, massive richness on the mid-palate, and abundant power, density, and ripeness. It is clearly the finest Lynch Bages since the 1989 and 1990. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025. Robert Parker

Sweet pipe tobacco, black currant, green peppers, violets, medium body, well balanced ruby core with a red brick rim, at his peak now!

Pauillac at his peak! Refreshing acidity, firm chewy tannins dry red fruit and leather start to show up
