1978 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (high mid shoulder fill-bad label)
Back In Stock!
92 points Wine Spectator: "No tasting note given." (10/1989) K&L Notes: The Lynch-Bages vineyards are located on the Bages plateau, one of the great terroirs of the Pauillac appellation. The estate, once belonging to the Lynch family of Irish descent, passed to Jean-Charles Cazes in 1934. Jean-Michel Cazes, his grandson, restructured the estate in 1974 by upgrading the winemaking equipment, but kept the former wooden vats in order to preserve the estate's history.

92 points Wine Advocate: "An excellent 1978 (one of the top wines of the vintage), Pichon-Lalande's offering displays an aromatic profile consisting of roasted herbs, chocolate, cedar, tobacco, and ripe curranty fruit. Medium-bodied, with low acidity, some tannin, and a round, attractive personality... (RP)" (01/1998) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Fully mature, with a slightly juicy feel to the cedar, singed vanilla, blood orange, clove, tobacco, dried currant and cherry fruit flavors. Long, fine-grained tannins let an echo of iron linger. Not fully ripe,...

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1978 Latour, Pauillac (92WS, 90RP, 90VN). Wine Spectator: "A sleek and racy wine. Ruby-amber color. Aromas of cedar, cigar box, tobacco, mint and mushrooms, with hints of red fruits, follow though to a medium body with fine tannins and a long, silky finish. (JS)" (08/2000)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1978 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (94VN, 93JG, 93RP, 92TWI, 92WS). Vinous: "A host of Cabernet Sauvignon-infused aromas make a strong opening statement in the 1978 Pichon Lalande. There is certainly no shortage of power or character. If anything, the 1978 is perhaps a bit lacking in mid-palate depth, which gives it an element of austerity. Aside from that small critique, the 1978 is deeply expressive and gorgeous. (AG)" (10/2017)

Bid on this 2-half-bottle lot of 1978 Joseph Phelps Selected Late Harvest Napa Valley Johannisberg Riesling (375ml). In previous eras of California winemaking, Johannisberg Riesling was commonly seen on labels. It was likely for some sake of marketing, as Schloss Johannisberg was historically the most famous estate in Germany and the first to plant Riesling exclusively. The Johannisberg eventually fell away in California, but over the years a few producers did produce successful botrytised dessert wines in the method of German Beerenauslese.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1978 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion (93ST). Int'l Wine Cellar: "Bright red. The captivating nose of red berries, minerals and grilled nuts is complicated by a delicate leafiness and a spicy tobacco note. Then sweet, bright and focused in the mouth, with flavors of red berries, tobacco, cedar and underbrush. Finishes very long and spicy, with a slight tannic kick at the back, but still manages to come across as refined and suave. This Cheval Blanc has always exhibited (especially in its youth), a firmer, more austere personality than most vintage. The 1978 growing season was characterized by slightly lower-than-average temperatures in the summer and fall. It was dry right through the very late harvest, which took place between October 9 and 18. There was a late start to the growth cycle and lots of mildew in the spring. This was one of the best bottles of 1978 Cheval Blanc I have ever tried. (ID)" (10/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 1978 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien. Wine Advocate: "This is a very attractive Leoville-Barton that seems to be developing at a more accelerated pace than I had initially expected. A lovely, rather full, big bouquet of smoky, berryish, ripe fruit is first class. On the palate, the wine shows a good cedary, spicy, deep fruity constitution, moderate tannins, and a long finish. (RP)" (12/1997)
Starting Bid: $110.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1978 Palmer, Margaux (93JG, 92RP, 92VN). John Gilman: "The 1978 Château Palmer is a beautiful wine that is now at its apogee of peak maturity, with the personality of the vintage giving this wine a slightly exotic extra layer of complexity that is very appealing. As readers most likely remember, the 1978 vintage was one that was saved by a perfect Indian Summer that took what had been a underripe crop and pushed it across the finish line in October with three weeks of warm and sunny weather. . . The bouquet is pure and utterly refined, wafting from the glass in a mix of mulberry, plums, cigar smoke, gravelly soil tones, a hint of chipotle, gentle notes of black truffle, lavender and just a bit of new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, suave and complex, with a seamless sense of balance, a lovely core of fruit, melting tannins and great length and grip on the very refined finish. Great juice.

Bid on this bottle of 1978 Remoissenet Clos de la Roche Grand Cru. Decanter rates the 1978 red Burgundy vintage a 5 out of 5 declaring, "Small crop of classic wines with good structure and fine fruit." Established in a 14th century building in Beaune, Remoissenet Père et Fils was founded in Burgundy in 1877. According to the importer, "Remoissenet Père et Fils is a reference point for refined Burgundy wines. This ancient estate, connected by mortar and stone to the medieval walls of Beaune, is for serious collectors linked by vine and bottle to Burgundy’s hallowed past and its exciting future. Wandering through the 150-year-old estate’s hand-carved cellars is to travel back in time, each cool bottle telling a story of vintages past, wars won, anniversaries celebrated."

Bid on this 3 liter of 1978 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (3L) (94JG, 94WE, 90RP, 90WS). Wine Enthusiast: "Unknown % of To Kalon; the winemaker thinks 'a big chunk, maybe most.' Still good color, getting a pretty bouquet of old cabernet. Delicate, inviting, refined, not at all morbid. Very dry, lots of week cassis. Soft, distinguished, still lots of life ahead. Sweet vanilla, butter. Old claret. *Editors' Choice* " (06/2005)
Current Bid: $505.00
