Description

Few wines in 2013 provide power through weight of fruit and fine structure. This year’s Lynch Bages is again gladiatorial, muscular, defined, powerful and it certainly will entertain. A core of beautifully defined, luscious, cassis and blackcurrant fruit provides weight and a light touch of sweetness whilst the long finish has a gentle, stylish and graceful uplift. This is not in the same league as the 2010, 2009 or 2000 but it is closer than you’d think and with it being 25% cheaper than the current market price of the 2007, there is every reason to buy this very fine 2013.
