Tasting Notes Lynch Bages 2003

95

This sexy, evolved, dense ruby/purple-tinged 2003 reveals notes of smoke, herbs, black currant jam, licorice and graphite. Full-bodied, opulent and flamboyant, it is another example of a stunning 2003 northern Medoc that can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 more years. This irregular vintage hit its zenith in the northern Medoc and in a handful of limestone terroirs in St.-Emilion. In contrast, other areas, particularly Pomerol, Graves and the sandy, gravelly soils of St.-Emilion, experienced difficulties in 2003.

Pretty, clean, and perfumed, with a milk chocolate and berry character. Full bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a long finish. Polished and very beautiful, caressing. Pull the cork after 2014.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's "10-Year On" tasting in London. The Lynch Bages 2003 has a lifted bouquet of dark cherry, iodine, light floral scents and a touch of cassis. It is nicely defined but would benefit from more vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with a soft, plump opening. It is very smooth in the mouth with subtle meaty notes, yet the finish is missing delineation and tension. It coalesces nicely in the glass but never really lifts off like other vintages of Lynch Bages. Tasted March 2013.
