The 2018 Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac, Bordeaux was a Merchant's Pick
Blockbuster Bordeaux • Destined For Top 100 And Even Top 5!
October 18, 2021
Extremely limited! This one's gonna go fast...
We wouldn't be surprised if the 2018 Chateau Lynch-Bages finishes as a Top 5 contender this year!
Having recently tasted this glorious wine, we can confidently say it is one of the best from this treasured Chateau.
It is a blockbuster in every sense; it is lush and balanced and retains its hallmark grip.
"The 2018 Château Lynch-Bages has everything you look for in a great wine: incredible aromatics, richness without weight, perfect balance, and a purity of fruit that's just about off the charts. Dense purple, it reveals a glorious perfume of blackcurrants and blackberry fruits, a deep, unctuous mouthfeel, building tannins, and a complex array of cedar pencil, tobacco, wood smoke, and chocolate. A true blockbuster in every sense, with masses of fruit and tannin's as well as moderate acidity, it will probably merit a triple-digit score in a decade and is a 50+-year wine from this team."

What We Love About The 2018 Chateau Lynch-Bages
Lynch Bages, a Fifth Growth, can be found in the cellar of every Bordeaux collector. It is one of the first Bordeaux we look for when evaluating en primeur (futures) pricing, as well as the first Bordeaux we look for when dining out. It is priced just below some of the pricier 2nd and 3rd Growths without sacrificing quality.
Lynch Bages is also one of the most recognized Bordeaux. In fact, a bottle of 1975 Lynch Bages was brought aboard NASA’s 1985 Discovery Space Shuttle by French astronaut Patrick Baudry, as a symbol of the country.
Be sure to reserve yours; it is a classic and "utterly fabulous." Vinous
