The Château Lynch Bages 2005 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 2005 into the wine aristocracy. The harvest took place completely manually between the 25th of September and the 10th of October 2005. The grapes were then selected very carefully. In order to get the best out of this red, enjoy the Château Lynch Bages 2005 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.

"Château Lynch-Bages : l'amour de la terre traduit dans des raisins de qualité Le vignoble du Château Lynch-Bages s'étend sur près d'une centaine d'hectares, avec des reliefs bien dessinés et constitués de graves garonnaises. Ces sols ont la particularité d'être particulièrement caillouteux et pauvres, ce qui permet au sol de rendre à la tombée du soir toute la chaleur emmagasinée tout au long de la journée, ce qui en fait un terrain de jeu propice au Cabernet Sauvignon qui domine le vignoble. On trouve aussi du Merlot, du Cabernet Franc et du Petit Verdot.Les fruits sont ramassés à la main et triés avec soin. Après une rude sélection des cuves en chêne français, les vins vieillissent en barriques de chêne jusqu'à sa mise en bouteilles. Château Lynch-Bages 2005 : un millésime complexe tout en douceur et en délicatesse Le Château Lynch-Bages 2005 est un millésime de grande qualité, qui fera craquer les amateurs les plus exigeants. Avec sa belle robe rubis foncé on est surpris par ses parfums de fruits noirs gourmands, de crème de cassis, de bois de cèdre, de chocolat noir et d'épices. En bouche, on retrouve toutes les odeurs avec un bouquet riche et complexe, et révèle des tannins profonds.Un vin qui n'a presque aucune limite de vieillissement tant il peut se développer au fil des années. Rond, suave et puissant, ce Lynch-Bages 2005 se démarque par son côté fruité et sa délicatesse irrésistible. A déguster avec une pièce de bœuf fondante ou une caille au miel. Notes et Références Wine Spectator : 93/100 Robert Parker : 91-93/100 J.Robinson : 17,5/20"

This vintage 2013 offers a nice quality. The wine shows a dark red shiny colour. On the nose it is characterised by aromas of black fruits like blackcurrant and blackberry. We also notice notes of toast offering a nice complexity. It is particularly dense and concentrated on the mouth. Balance is perfectly mastered. It expresses on ripe fruits and an elegant woody note. The tannin structure is remarkable, dense and silky. A wine also offering a fine length.

Located at Pauillac on the ancient villages of Bages, former property of the Lynch family, the 5th Cru Château Lynch-Bages has been for three generations in the hands of the Cazes family that manages its business with great success. On the 90 hectares of pebbles facing the Gironde, Jean-Charles Cazes, grows the majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon to a height, because of which they have been compared to several premier wines. Lynch-Bages is today a reference of the Bordeaux wine, always robust, which makes it difficult for an amateur to not possess several bottles well hidden.

The Château Lynch-Bages experiences several great success stories. After an excellent 2010 vintage, the 2011 proves once again the great quality of this Cru.

The robe of this vintage ist profound, intense and shimmery. The nose surprises with great freshness and intense scents of black berries.
The amateurs of the Cru will get once again their money's worth, with a pure wine and its fine, generous texture and elegant tannins.
The long-lasting finale explodes on fruits and a fine acidity.
