2019 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1480735 96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2019 Château Lynch-Bages is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that's still resting in 75% new French oak. Offering blockbuster notes of crème de cassis, burning embers, violets, graphite, and liquid rock-like minerality, it shows the more elegant style of the vintage on the palate yet builds with air, revealing incredible concentration and depth of fruit, loads of tannins, and a mammoth-sized finish. This classic Lynch-Bages will take a decade to hit maturity but will keep for 50-60 years or more. It's not for the drink me now crowd. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

96-98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Lynch Bages is stunning. Rich, ample and dramatic, the 2019 possesses tremendous richness and an intensity that builds all the way through to the finish. Inky red and purplish fruit, new leather, cedar and blueberry are all pushed forward here. Vibrant and expansive from the very first taste, with tremendous saline energy backing it all up, Lynch Bages is pure magic in 2019. Wow. Don't miss it! (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This takes hold from the first moment and powers along, delivering a ton of black brambly fruit, liquorice, grilled cedar and Pauillac confidence. The tannins are pretty chewy, really closing in on the end of play, giving no doubt that this is going to age slowly and for many decades, but there is a creaminess to the overall structure that is already evident. (JA) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

96-97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tight and very focused young red with redcurrant, tile and blackberry undertones. Lead pencil, too. It’s full-bodied with very polished, creamy tannins and lots of intense dark fruit. Compact fruit and tannins. Structured. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Very focused and I noticed it gaining delineation with aeration. The palate is very smooth and harmonious, the acidity perfectly pitched with a gentle but insistent grip. It reminds me of the superlative 2016 in some ways, effortless on the lightly spiced finish. This has huge potential. They should build a new winery to celebrate!" (6/2020)
