Tasting Notes

Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. A strong showing from Lynch-Bages which is matching a couple of First Growths. The 2007 has an attractive nose: well defined with blackberry, strawberry and briary. There is good mineralité here with pencil lead and cedar showing through - very Pauillac, very fresh. The palate is demonstrating very good fruit concentration with saturated ripe tannins, good acidity and structure, over-achieving on the succulent finish. Excellent.

Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, October 2011

Delicious, supple and close to full maturity, the 2007 Lynch Bages exhibits a dark plum/purple color with some lightening at the edge along with tobacco leaf, bay leaf, black currant and earthy, loamy notes. Medium-bodied, supple and charming, it is best drunk over the next 7-8 years.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (196), August 2011

An underrated vintage that is delivering easy to drink signature Pauillac. Pencil lead, smoked cedar, sandalwood, concentrated mint leaf, cassis and bilberry, with finesse, balance and juice. A seductive, moreisih and beautifully balanced wine that is ready to enjoy, but will continue to deliver over the next decade. 70% new oak.

Jane Anson, JaneAnson.com, April 2022

Deep purple-red, good depth of blackcurrant Cabernet fruit, finely expressed fruit on palate, discreet (for Lynch-Bages) yet all in a piece, good length, nicely ripe tannins, good balance. Drink 2012-20. 4 stars.

A big, fruity effort, the 2007 Lynch Bages offers lots of creme de cassis, damp earth, and subtle background oak. It is a deep, layered, lush, forward, evolved wine that will offer hedonistic drinking over the next decade. Drink 2010-2020.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (188), April 2010

This has good concentration on the nose with blackberry, cedar, vanilla and raspberry. Good lift and definition. Medium-bodied, excellent fruit concentration and a real brightness to it. No signs of any greenness, very fine tannins, this is a more feminine Lynch Bages with great focus and deftness of touch. Pure blackberry, cedar and blueberry finish. Good length. Excellent Lynch-Bages that could merit a higher score after bottling. Tasted April 2008
