Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

A charming, lush, round, generous Lynch Bages, the 1999 offers plenty of sweet black currant fruit, damp earth, licorice, cedarwood and spicy herb-like characteristics. Medium-bodied, savory and broad in the mouth with no hard edges, this fully mature effort is a somewhat underrated vintage for this estate. Enjoy it over the next decade. Robert Parker

I thought this showed exceptionally well for a vintage that for me usually shows a real lack of intensity on the left bank. This was mature, lively and open for business. Worn sweaty leather, grainy damp earth, round warm full deep crimson fruit.

Started off a little closed, opened up to be gorgeous. Wonderful balance, nice acidity, could age a while longer, but I would just enjoy these right now.

My favorite of the night. Red fruit singing, wet compost, leather jacket, allspice, stellar structure.

Lighter style but still delicious and very true to its origin. Cassis, red currants and positive vegetative notes on the earthy finish.

Dark cherry and wet earth. Just what you'd expect from fifth growth. Respect.
