Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2009 (1500ml)

$379

...the greatest Lynch Bages since the outstanding duo of 1989 and 1990. The black/purple-tinged 2009 exhibits a glorious perfume of graphite, black currants, and subtle smoke, powerful, thick, unctuously textured flavors, huge yet sweet tannins, fabulous purity, and a finish that lasts 40-45 seconds...this is a 30-40-year wine from this popular estate run by the affable and highly respected Cazes family...

Never quite hit the heights we were expecting. Graphite pencil and big tannin that never really left were the dominant flavours over 3 days.

The 09 with our 4th course, Cheese w/ Fruits & Nuts. The 09 is so soft & easier to drink young but, I won’t open mine for another 10 years. Loads of dark cassis. Ripe; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries & blue fruit hues. Leathery, dark chocolate, dry stones, crushed limestone, cedar, dark but lighter graphite, medium spice, clove, dry herbs, dark dry soil, dry stems, scorched earth and withering dark florals. The structure, tension, length are there screaming to be magnificent. The well balanced finish is very good now but all I can think about is it in another 15 years plus.

Love this wine. Needs about 60 mins decant time but wow does it deliver. Cashmere sweater wrapped around loads of fruit. Structure to last decades but go ahead, try a bottle now.

Probably the deepest and darkest fruit on the nose of a wine that I have ever had. Could get lost in this for hours.

Classic... As textbook Medoc as it gets. Cassis, menthol, pencil lead...it's all there.

Red currant and plum with cedar, a bit of new leather, and crushed rocks. Concentrated fruit and minerality on the palate. Looking forward to revisiting in the years to come.
