http://www.maxbordeaux.com/components/com_joomfish/images/flags/fr.gif Assemblage : 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Très séduisant de par l’exubérance de son fruit et la maturité de ses tanins il est facile à déguster jeune, mais il rassemble également tous les attributs d’un millésime de très longue garde.

Le Figaro Vin, 2010 : 17,5/20

Dense, beau milieu de bouche impressionnant, tannique, du coffre.

Le Guide Hachette Des Vins 2013

Au fil des ans, le hameau de Bages s'est animé autour de sa place, avec son boulanger, son épicerie fine et son bistrot, retrouvant l'atmosphère des villages d'antan. Mais le coeur de l'ensemble reste le château Lynch-Bages, propriété de Jean-Michel Cazes depuis bientôt quarante ans. Son 2009 s'impose par son bouquet puissant, sur le cassis mûr et le cacao noir, agrémenté de quelques notes animales et grillées, puis par son palais ample, gras et long, aux puissants tanins d'une austérité presque "bénédictine", lesquels lui permettront d'affronter une belle garde.


English Version Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (199), March 2012: 98/100

Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense of heaviness or fatigue. This exquisite Lynch Bages should drink well for 30+ years. Drink 2012-2042.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2012: 97/100

Wow. Intense aromas of blackberries, currants and blueberries, follow through to a full body, with wonderful fruit and ultra-fine tannins. Fabulous Lynch. One of the top buys of the vintage. Best since 1989. I think that 2010 is probably better. Try in 2020.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2010: 17,5/20

Dense crimson. Rich and spicy and lifted. Really rather flirtatious. Not heavy or dense but very nicely balanced without aggressive notes of rough tannin or greenness. Date tasted 1st April 2010. Drink 2020-2040.

Château Lynch Bages-5ème Cru Classé en 1855-Appellation Pauillac
Château Lynch Bages Château Lynch Bages was owned by the Lynch family for three quarters of a century. Their ancestor, John Lynch, a young Irishman from Galway was exiled from his country in 1691. In the 18th century, Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch, Mayor of Bordeaux, inherited the estate and handed over management to his brother Michel Lynch, who was also Mayor of Pauillac during the French Revolution.

Jean-Charles Cazes, highly respected in the Médoc for his experience in viticulture and winemaking, bought the property in 1934. With his son André, he devoted all his energy to Lynch-Bages for more than 35 years. In 1974, his grand-son Jean-Michel set about restructuring the estate. Situated at the gates of Pauillac, overlooking the Gironde estuary from the crest of one of the most beautiful gravel ridges of the commune, the vineyards lie on gravelly slopes located on the south and south west extremities of the town.
