The 2017 Château Lynch-Bages is a simply stunning wine in this challenging vintage. This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot begins with fascinating aromatics of red and dark berries, fresh floral, tobacco, graphite, herbs and licorice that all take shape beautifully in the glass. This possesses a gorgeous medium-plus body with remarkable balance and structure. It goes on to impress as it displays wonderful purity and elegance through the beautiful long finish. An incredible effort that should go on to have a tremendous future ahead.
