2005 Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac, France

The 2005 vintage is one of our greatest vintages of recent decades.

2005 Chateau Lynch-Bages characteristics in a nutshell:

  • A warm summer,
  • Near-drought conditions,
  • Harvest remained largely free of rainfall, and the fruit was brought in by relaxed and happy workers.

The potential of the vintage was already clear, even before the first fermentations were finished.

Lynch-Bages 2005 was aged in 80% new oak which is the most we have ever used, feeling it necessary to cloak the exceptional fruit and powerful tannins.

Surface : 90 hectares
« Terroir » (soil) : Garonne Gravel
Harvest : Hand-picked and sorted at the vineyard

Ageing: 

French oak barrels for 15 months (80% new wood)

Blending: 

72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

As for the 2005 Lynch-Bages, it is a sexy, surprisingly soft and accessible style of wine, with a deep ruby/purple color, loads of crème de cassis, cedar wood and forest floor notes, medium to full body, ripe tannin and a long, fleshy finish. Drink it over the next 15+ years. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr. Issue date June 28 2015. Drinking window: 2015-2030.

(Rating 95+) The 2005 Lynch-Bages is a surprising wine. Whereas so many 2005s have begun to enter their first plateau of early maturity, the 2005 comes across as still young and in need of further cellaring! The purity of the fruit is striking. Readers who want to get the full Lynch-Bages experience will have to wait at least a few more years. The 2005 is a wine of substance and depth, with all of the raciness that is typical of this wine. It is one of the dark horses of the vintage, and still has room to go. Impressive. Reviewed by Antonio Galloni. Tasting date: April 2021. Drinking window: 2028-2048.
