Tasting Notes Lynch Bages 1989

99+

The 1989 has taken forever to shed its formidable tannins, but what a great vintage of Lynch Bages! I would rank it at the top of the pyramid although the 1990, 2000, and down the road, some of the more recent vintages such as 2005, 2009 and 2010 should come close to matching the 1989's extraordinary concentration and undeniable aging potential. Its dense purple color reveals a slight lightening at the edge and the stunning bouquet offers classic notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, oak and graphite. Powerful and rich with some tannins still to shed at age 22, it is still a young adolescent in terms of its evolution and will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring. It should prove to be a 50 year wine.

I have always been a big fan of this rich wine, with its currant and tropical fruit character on the nose and palate, and just a hint of toasted oak. It’s full-bodied, with wild fruit and tobacco character, and a roasted coffee bean aftertaste. This is a fabulous wine. Served from imperial bottle.

Tasted at Robersons’ 1989 Bordeaux horizontal. The Lynch-Bages ’89 has a similar hue to the Pichon Baron. The nose is very well defined with classic Pauillac aromas of blackberry, cedar, pencil box, autumn leaves and a touch of truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with good fruit concentration, fine acidity, a savoury note developing with game and a touch of chestnut, leading to a harmonious, lightly peppered finish. Excellent. Drink now-2025. Tasted June 2010.
