Chateau Lynch-Bages 2014

 A case of 6 Bottles (750ML)

For the 2014 vintage, Chateau Lynch-Bages focused on preserving the unique aromatic expression and freshness of their wines with 75% new wood ageing. A deep, ink-like hue introduces this fragrant Pauillac. The nose exudes lovely black fruits notes, very fresh. The palate reveals a rich, buttery wine, with perfectly blended, silky tannins. The 2014 Chateau Lynch-Bages is 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. This subtle blend boasts great balance, strength, freshness, and elegance.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Lynch Bages was actually similar to the 2014 Pichon Baron on the nose: tight and surly at first, demanding a lot of coaxing from the glass. It eventually opens up with a mixture of red and black fruit, cedar and tobacco, gaining more harmony and intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite linear and focused at the moment, precise if just needing a little more body and depth to evolve on the straight-laced finish. Give this Pauillac 4-5 years in bottle and it is likely to repay you.
