Lynch Bages 1989, 750mL (WA99+, WS98) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Lynch Bages

750mL

Vintage: 1989
Region: France--Bordeaux
Appellation: Pauillac
Condition: lnl, bsl

WA99+, WS98
Rated 99+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 1989 has taken forever to shed its formidable tannins, but what a great vintage of Lynch Bages! I would rank it at the top of the pyramid although the 1990, 2000, and down the road, some of the more recent vintages such as 2005, 2009 and 2010 should come close to matching the 1989`s extraordinary concentration and undeniable aging potential. Its dense purple color reveals a slight lightening at the edge and the stunning bouquet offers classic notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, oak and graphite. Powerful and rich with some tannins still to shed at age 22, it is still a young adolescent in terms of its evolution and will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring. It should prove to be a 50 year wine.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate.
