The chosen blend for the 2015 Lynch-Bages gives to Chateau Lynch-Bages the chance to highlight the Cabernet Sauvignons perfection and vibrancy. The 70% Cabernet Sauvignon (very concentrated with remarkably ripe tannins) share the blend with 24% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. This Pauillac 5 cru classé is very expressive on black fruits such as blackcurrants with a delicate empyreumatic note due to its current ageing. The attack is frank on the palate. On the mid-palate, this wine is broad and strong; its tannic structure has fine, silky grains and perfectly extracted tannins. The finish is really long and closes on strong black fruit aromas. It is a fine Lynch-Bages with a great potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Lynch Bages offers up crushed black berries, black cherries and dried herbs with an earthy undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate is firm and taut with lively fruit and a chewy finish.
