Chateau Lynch Bages 1996 Pauillac Grand Cru Classe 2 x 75cl / 13%
This lot contains two bottles of Château Lynch Bages 1996 Grand Cru Classé vintage from the Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation.
'The 1996 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color that is just beginning to lighten at the edge, surprisingly velvety tannins and a classic Pauillac bouquet of lead pencil shavings, cedarwood, black currants, sweet cherries and spice box. This medium to full-bodied, elegant, savory, broad wine is still five years away from full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years. 93/100' Robert Parker, 2011
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where they have been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
