Slightly austere, leafy and herbal, the fresh 1998 lacks concentration, fat and fruit depth. It reveals a hint of herbs interwoven with attractive red and black currant aromas, but the wine falls off on the palate, and requires drinking up as it is likely to become increasingly desiccated.

Tasting note


The 1998 Chateau Lynch-Bages, a celebrated Fifth Growth from the esteemed Pauillac appellation, is a wine that exudes classic Bordeaux charm. With a medium to deep ruby red hue, it offers a delightful bouquet of jammy raspberry and vanilla. On the palate, this wine presents a harmonious blend of open, lifted cassis fruit intertwined with notes of cream and a generous helping of vanilla oak. The cedary structure and fresh, balanced acidity provide a solid backbone, leading to a long finish that is redolent with pure fruit flavor. This vintage, which boasts a firm tannic structure and a freshness accentuated by lovely acidity, is a testament to the rigorous selection process during a challenging harvest. Matured in French oak barrels for 15 months, with 60% new wood, this wine is a testament to the meticulous care in winemaking. Enjoy the 1998 Chateau Lynch-Bages after decanting for an hour, paired with robust dishes such as roast lamb or grilled steak.
