Château Lynch Bages (Pauillac)
Product not available in United States
The Château Lynch Bages 1978 is an outstanding red wine made by Château Lynch Bages, only created in good vintages. This noble drink is one of the great from Pauillac and adds to the elite of the Grand Cru Classé wines. Its high quality is undeniable. Wine experts like Jancis Robinson, Robert Parker or Hachette gave very high evaluations and promoted the Château Lynch Bages 1978 into the wine aristocracy. The harvest took place completely manually between the 25th of September and the 10th of October 1978. The grapes were then selected very carefully. In order to get the best out of this red, enjoy the Château Lynch Bages 1978 from 2011 until 2030, with good storage also until 2035. Once opened, however, you should drink it in the next few days. After such a long time in the bottle, you should give the wine a nice decanting period in the carafe. Only this way, you'll enjoy all its elegant aromas which represent this Grand Cru Classé.
