Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac 1989 1.5L

SKU 05695


Very dark colour. Subtle bouquet of cocoa, coffee, cedar and peppermint. Starts out very soft and rich on the palate. Impressive tannic structure, though in now way harsh. Very long aftertaste. Very great wine. Both powerful and suave.

Wine SpectatorDelivers so much blackberry, leather and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with ultrapolished tannins and a silky mouthfeel. The palate turns to leaves, cedar and dried berries on the finish, which goes on and on. This is still reserved for the vintage, suggesting a long life ahead. Just coming around now, but will improve many years ahead. I have always loved this Lynch. '89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now.

Wine AdvocateConsistently backward and dense, with enormous potential, this admirable wine will not be ready for prime time drinking for another 5-7 years. The color is not quite as opaque as the 1990's, but reveals more purple and no lightening at the edge. Hugely concentrated flavors have just begun to offer up a nose of cedar and creme de cassis. Powerful and muscular, with high tannin and superb concentration, this is Lynch Bages at its biggest and most beastly. However, everything is in balance for a stunning evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.

Robert Parker, June 2000
