2009 Wine - Red Château Lynch-Bages

2009 Château Lynch-Bages (Bordeaux - Pauillac, France)
Wine - Red $339.99 (750mL)

Lynch-Bages is a 5th Growth from the 1855 Classification but connoisseurs are well aware that in great vintages, LB performs at a super-second level. The 2009 will rank alongside the 1982, 1989, 1990 and 2000 as the greatest wines ever made at this estate (well situated with the two Pichons as neighbours). Extremely limited availability so grab yours quickly while supply lasts.

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Rating: 96

Tight and backward, this has dense, almost chewy layers of fig, currant and plum cake behind a very solid wall of cedar, roasted vanilla and charcoal notes. There's serious grip on the finish, with an iron edge that won't quit. Best from 2015 through 2035. 31,500 cases made. Wine Spectator's #93 Wine of the Year for 2012.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Rating: 98

Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense of heaviness or fatigue. This exquisite Lynch Bages should drink well for 30+ years.
