Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 Lynch Bages is boldly scented of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and baked plums with chocolate box, incense and underbrush suggestions plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, taut and well sustained in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy texture and a lively backbone lifting the black fruit core to a nice long finish. Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown. Issue date March 14, 2019. Drinking window: 2019-2044.

Vinous

The 2009 Lynch-Bages has an intense bouquet which is more forward than Grand Puy Lacoste, albeit without the same complexity. Layers of blackberry, bilberry, brine and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, slightly lower in acidity than the 2010 Lynch Bages, dense and quite sinewy towards the finish. It might miss the class of its peers but you cannot help but admire the brawn underneath its aristocratic coat. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. Reviewed by Neal Martin. Tasting date: February 2019. Drinking window: 2021-2036.

2009 Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac, France

« Here comes the sun… »

A vintage that was made from gentle, progressive weather, with gradual concentration coming from perfect summer ripening, followed, continuously and without interruption, by further concentration from a perfect autumn. The year went through the gears seamlessly with no jolts.

Thanks to satellite photography, we introduced intra-plot harvesting, and harvest was performed according to the ripeness of the grapes in each small section of the vineyard.
Harvest started on September 28 and was completed on October 12.

Rich, ripe, opulent 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured at LynchBages, as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). Gorgeous to taste, it may well remain so throughout its life, such is the ripeness of both fruit and tannin. One can imagine drinking the 09’s young to enjoy the exuberance of their fruit, but much greater pleasure will be obtained through the exercise of patience.

Surface: 90 hectares
« Terroir » (soil): Garonne Gravel
Harvest: Hand-picked and sorted at the vineyard
Ageing: French oak barrels for 15 months (70% new wood)
Blending: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot Production: 68% of the total crop
