Château Lynch Bages 2006

The Chateau Lynch Bages covers an area of ​​100 hectares planted over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon associated with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The geographical area of ​​Pauillac lies in the heart of the Médoc peninsula. The soil is suitable for Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines have intense color and deep. The nose offers aromas of red and black fruit, spice and roasting keys. This bouquet is supported by a fine tannic structure. The Pauillac are great wines of guard. 2006 was a difficult vintage. It is a winemaker's vintage. The winter was cold and hard with snowfall. Spring was wet which allowed the mildew from spreading. The warm spell from mid-June evolved into drought. The month of August was execrable. Finally a beautiful September allowed harvest on a beautiful maturities. Good winemakers have managed a beautiful and great vintage.

At Lynch-Bages, although the key stages take place in the vineyard with Franck Debrais and his team, the utmost care and attention is given to all stages of the winemaking process, from the sorting of the grapes in the vineyard up until their fining in the calm and dimmed environment of the cellars.

4/5

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.

4/5

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.

We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good. A wine to drink with your family.
At sight it has an intensive cherry colour. Tobacco aromas. It reminded me of black plums.
