The Château Lynch Bages 2008 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 2008 into the wine aristocracy. The harvest took place completely manually between the 25th of September and the 10th of October 2008. The grapes were then selected very carefully. In order to get the best out of this red, enjoy the Château Lynch Bages 2008 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.

- View: dark, discreet nose, but pure and fresh
Rating: 16, 5/20
Since the simultaneous arrival in 2006 of Jean-Charles Cazes and Nicolas Labenne, new director, believed subtly changing profile and returns to a higher level
More green jobs, more plot selection, creating a generic wine, a reflection on mass selection and rescue of Petit Verdot reflect this extra attention
In fact, the wine seems both more open and more accurate
A little more pure than usual
Fleshy on the attack, very tasty and full, it grows aromatic, flavorful, round tannins
tasty and powerful length
All is fresh and rather dense for the year
The end of the harvest took place prior to the frost of October 19
Blend 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
The wine is now done in 75% new oak.

Reviews about Château Lynch-Bages 2011
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.
