Chateau Lynch-Bages 2011

 A case of 3 Magnums (1.5L)

The 2011 vintage Chateau Lynch-Bages alternates superb fragrances that are easy to identify.This vintage stands out from the two previous years (sunny and powerful) with expressions of ripe fruits and quite delicate yet blended tannins. The sheer elegance and pleasant freshness of this Pauillac make for great balance. The 2011 Chateau Lynch-Bages, though already luscious and charming, will require a few years in the cellar before enjoying.

Parker : 90 / 100

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage.
