Tasting Notes Lynch Bages 1998

89

Ex-cellar bottle tasted blind at the Lynch Bages vertical. Very ripe on the nose, blueberry, a touch of iodine, blackcurrant wine gums, cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with quite thick tannins, a little chewy and linear, quite succulent, rounded, blackberry, a hint of dates, citrus freshness towards the finish. The 1998 has a lot of energy and pizzazz about it, although it is just a little overdone, when there was no need. Drink now-2020+ Tasted September 2009.

Slightly austere, leafy and herbal, the fresh 1998 lacks concentration, fat and fruit depth. It reveals a hint of herbs interwoven with attractive red and black currant aromas, but the wine falls off on the palate, and requires drinking up as it is likely to become increasingly desiccated.
