Chateau Lynch Bages 2011 Pauillac 75cl / 13%
A bottle of Château Lynch Bages 2011 Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation.
'Young, poised black fruits, blackberry and bilberry that are ripe but still laced with fresh acidities, giving a slight angularity to the tannins. This is good quaility, with signature Lynch Bages confidence, but does not expand through the palate as the vintages on either side do, holding itself back. I suggest waiting for another few years before drinking to really allow things to soften up. 65% new oak, with an optical sorter used for the first time in this vintage, and 65% of overall production making it into the 1st wine. 94/100' Jane Anson, 2022
