Tasting Notes Lynch Bages 1986

94

The 1986 is finally emerging from the dormant stage that many of the wines from this vintage (especially the Medocs) have been going through. It is a full-bodied, still backward wine that will appeal to classicists and old line traditionalists given its firm structure and austere tannins. Nevertheless, the color is a healthy deep garnet and the wine exhibits wonderful freshness along with notes of underbrush, damp earth, black currants, cedar and new saddle leather. Well-balanced with good depth, medium to full body, and a tannic (although not excessively so) finish, this may not be the most finesse-styled, elegant Lynch Bages ever produced, but it is an interesting Pauillac that will benefit from another 3-4 years of cellaring. While it may never hit the peaks achieved by great Lynch Bages vintages, it will be one of those rare wines that will last 40+ years.

Ex-cellar bottle tasted blind at the Lynch Bages vertical. Deep garnet colour. This has a lovely nose: much fresher, vibrant black fruits, wild hedgerow, a touch of earth, boysenberry, great definition. The palate is full-bodied, firm, slightly chewy tannins, dense black fruits, a touch of iodine, blackberry, briary, cedar, pine, very well balanced and focused towards its harmonious but grippy, tannic, stout finish. There is undoubtedly a lot of dry extract here. This is finally coming round
