Tasting Notes

This property in the Graves is owned and run by the Cazes family of Lynch Bages. Previous vintages here have offered very good quality and delivered attractive, forward drinking with extremely modest release prices. Usually one of the best buys en primeur. The vines (planted in 1988) are now reaching maturity and the 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot fruit is being aged in 30% new oak and 70% second year barrels from Lynch Bages. A very attractive smoky nose, ripe fruit here. Smooth, supple, juicy and forward. Will be a very attractive early drinker.
