2000 Château Lynch-Bages

Estate: Château Lynch-Bages

Region: Pauillac, Medoc, Bordeaux, France


Tasting Note:February 12, 2016

Third out of the three year blind vertical after the blind Burgundy night. Deep garnet red but a shade or two lighter than the 2002 and 2006. Lots of rustic, earthy and vegetal notes on the nose. Vegetal such as bell peppers. Moderate tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. Lots of greenery, some bark and definitely a rustic edge. Long and lingering finish, that is quite dry.
