Lynch Bages 2002
Tasting Notes Lynch Bages 2002
Tasted blind at Farr's 2002 Bordeaux tasting. This marks a better showing for Lynch Bages, this bottle retaining the austere, stoic facade but behind it more evidence of blueberry, iodine and violets. Good lift with an undercurrent of sous-bois. Very ripe entry, chewy tannins, blackberry, boysenberry and graphite leading to a dense, dry introverted finish. Tasted October 2009.
Bell pepper, cigar box, red as well as black currant notes, dusty, earthy tannins, and a medium-bodied personality make for a good but uninspiring effort. Drink the 2002 over the next 5-10 years.
