    As usual there was a zen-like calm at Ch Lynch Bages where a marvellous 2004 has been made. Although it has a whopping 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, they harvested late and this is a wine of deeply appealing ripeness and sweetness. Apart from great reserves of dark fruit, this wine shows lovely minerals and smoke flavours.Jean Michel Cazes compares the 2004 to both 1996 and 2001, similarly classic Lynch Bages. We recommend this wine very highly. Drink 2012-2025

    Attractive cassis aromas jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged 2004. While elegant, medium-bodied, soft, and broad in the mouth, it is slightly superficial, without the broodingly deep, backward, muscular personality of this estate's wines prior to 2001. Given its flavor profileand softness, the 2004 will have wide consumer appeal if drunk over the next 10-14 years. Drink 2007-2021

    Lynch-Bages's 2004 reveals a dark ruby/purple color, hints of flowers, crushed rocks, and blackcurrants, attractive, straightforward flavors, a touch of spice, and medium body but not the stuffing, power, and substance one expects from this property. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016.

    Sweet nose lacking a bit of zest, a bit stale on the nose, though relatively fleshy on the palate. An easy drink without an excess of tannin. Needs just a bit more zip. Quite stodgy. No hint of the spiciness that is characteristic of the property. Drink 2013-2018

Producer

Château Lynch-Bages

If any château in all of the classified growths consistently outperforms its original status, it is Lynch Bages. Indeed, this château has long been prized by Pauillac lovers who seek good value, yet well made wine. The property is situated just outside the quiet village of Pauillac north of Latour and Pichon Lalande. It is run by the very capable and amiable Jean-Charles Cazes who took over from his father Jean-Michel Cazes in 2006.

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
