The 2002 has turned out lighter and more herbaceous than I would have guessed. This medium-bodied wine reveals a dark ruby/purple-tinged color, and hints of cedar wood and tobacco in an evolved aromatic display which also includes herbs and black currants. Attractive in a superficial way, there is some tannin, but also a softness and charm. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

Tasting note


The 2002 Chateau Lynch-Bages, a Fifth Growth from the esteemed Pauillac appellation, is a testament to the resilience of Bordeaux winemaking. Despite a challenging vintage, this wine has matured into a charming expression of the region. It presents a deep ruby-red hue, nearly opaque, with a nose that combines cassis with meaty, rubbery, and dusty notes, and a hint of metallic complexity. The palate is greeted with blackcurrant fruit, showcasing a well-structured and tight profile. The balance of alcohol is commendable, though a touch more acidity might have been beneficial. The finish is passable, making this wine an attractive choice for those seeking a classic Bordeaux experience. Enjoy its fleshy and ample character, which exudes a certain charm that is sometimes overlooked in this forgotten vintage.
