The 2016 Château Lynch-Bages is utterly captivating. Composed from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, which spent 18 months in barrel (75% new oak). This stunning Pauillac opens with striking aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries, joined together with fresh violets, tobacco and hints of licorice all developing in the glass. On the palate this is medium to full bodied with a gorgeous velvety texture which is underlined by lovely streak of acidity keeping it fresh and inviting through the finish. It continues to impress with its excellent overall balance, concentration and focus all they way through the long finish. While this is already showing plenty of character, it is ultimately and age worthy wine which will go on to evolve for decades. Jean-Charles Cazes and consultant Eric Boissenot have crafted a classic Lynch-Bages in 2016.
