Tasting Notes Lynch Bages 2013

89-91

Cropped at 31hl/ha, a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, Jean-Charles Cazes told me that it was one of the shortest harvests because of the low yields between 1 and 12 October. The bouquet is has a pure floral bouquet that is quite Margaux-like in style. It is well defined with touches of creme de cassis and blueberry. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded, quite succulent entry. The acidity is nicely judge and there is a cohesive finish that feels long and tender in the mouth. There is palpable linearity present here in keeping with the vintage, but there is also commendable length. Tasted April 2014.

Fruity, light-bodied, pleasant, lush and charming, Lynch Bages' winemaking team was hesitant to push for any kind of extraction or density because of the pressures from rot. However, they have avoided any harshness in the tannins and vegetal characteristics. The result is an uncharacteristically superficial Lynch Bages that is a modern day version of their 1973.
