    Critical Acclaim:

    This magnificent Lynch Bages has been drinking well since the day it was released and it continues to go from strength to strength. The biggest, richest, fullest-bodied Lynch Bages until the 2000, the fully mature 1990 exhibits an unbelievably explosive nose of black currants, cedarwood, herbs and spice. The majestic, classically Bordeaux aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, rich, intense wine with superb purity as well as thrilling levels of fruit, glycerin and sweetness. This beauty should continue to provide immense pleasure over the next 15+ years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Aromas of tar, currant and berries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Still not completely ready, but so good anyway.

    94 Points
    Wine Spectator

    Dark ruby-red with a garnet edge. Initially inexpressive nose opens with aeration to reveal aromas of red fruits, flowers, tar and minerals. Sweet on entry, with flavors of red cherry syrup, vanilla and milk chocolate, then develops a delicate animal nuance with air. The long finish features persistent notes of tobacco and kirsch. Typically seductive Lynch-Bages, and quite opulent in texture.
