Description

The 1996 Lynch Bages has a delightful fresh, minty bouquet that does not quite deliver the complexity of recent vintages, nicely perfumed with hints of wilted rose petal developing with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, fresh from the start with blackcurrant pastilles, a touch of tobacco with a tightly coiled, minerally, slightly sharp finish that perhaps just needs a little more depth. I appreciate that lingering pencil lead note on the aftertaste, completing a solid if unspectacular Lynch Bages. It's the kind of Pauillac I would grab from a restaurant list at the right price. A point.

Tasting note

1996年的靚次伯是波爾多著名的帕雅克產區的第五級酒莊佳釀,展現了波爾多經典釀酒傳統的精髓。這款酒呈現深紅寶石色澤,香氣中肉質的氣息與黑色水果香交織,背後帶有濃郁的雪松香。口感中等至飽滿,活潑的酸度提升了濃郁的黑果風味。單寧結構緊實而集中,確保了令人印象深刻的餘韻。經過法國橡木桶陳釀15個月,其中70%為新木桶,這款酒已發展出複雜的黑醋栗和甜煙斗煙草的味道,並且結構優雅,餘韻悠長。它可能已達到巔峰,但預計將在未來十年或更長時間內保持這一水平,是任何收藏家的珍貴藏品。

The 1996 Chateau Lynch-Bages, a celebrated Fifth Growth from the esteemed Pauillac appellation, is a testament to the classic winemaking traditions of Bordeaux. This vintage showcases a deep ruby-red hue, with a bouquet that marries meaty notes and black fruit with an undercurrent of rich cedar. On the palate, it presents a medium to full body with a lively acidity that elevates the concentrated black fruit flavors. The wine's tannic structure is both tight and concentrated, ensuring a finish of impressive length. Matured in French oak barrels for 15 months, with 70% new wood, the wine has developed a sophisticated profile of black currant and sweet pipe tobacco, balanced by an elegant structure and a long, savory finish. With its peak likely reached, this wine promises to maintain its plateau for a decade or more, making it a prized addition to any collection.
