2001 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

SKU #1009589 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. The first bottle of this was denuded of vitality and out of sorts (indeed this is a major problem with this vintage.) Not corked, but previous experience old me that it was not “happy” bottle. Fortunately I stayed for another to be opened and this far more representative. Ripe, dark berried fruits on the nose with touches of mulberry, briary, graphite and sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp entry, tarry black fruits on the entry, sharp acidity, very tight but that is probably because this bottle had just been opened. Very fine.

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Delightful cedar, bay leaf and savory notes lead off while the core of currant and blackberry fruit has moved into a secondary phase. The bay leaf and cedar elements hold a slight upper hand through the finish, giving this a pleasantly rustic hint. (JM) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright red-ruby. Currant, herbs and smoke on the nose. Rich and suave on entry, then rather closed and austere in the middle palate, with moderately ripe, nicely delineated flavors of currant, cherry, smoke and mint. Best today on the back end, which features broad tannins and subtle lingering flavor. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (5/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Quite dark crimson. Very rich and seductive on the nose. Some evolution and lots of burnt mineral aromas. Lifted and fresh on the finish. But not angular and awkward. Actually rather racy and refreshing after the opulent nose. (JR) 17.5/20 Points Inner quote mark (3/2012)
