1999 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

SKU #999312 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A charming, lush, round, generous Lynch Bages, the 1999 offers plenty of sweet black currant fruit, damp earth, licorice, cedarwood and spicy herb-like characteristics. Medium-bodied, savory and broad in the mouth with no hard edges, this fully mature effort is a somewhat underrated vintage for this estate. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark ruby-red with a hint of garnet at the rim. Crème de cassis complemented by floral, tobacco and incense notes on the brightly aromatic nose. Very well balanced, clean, and juicy, with good inner-mouth perfume and energy to the dark fruit, cedar, herb and graphite flavors. The finish features mounting tannins that teeter on the brink of drying. This seems to have picked up some flesh and volume with bottle age, but I hope the fruit outlives the tannins. It's a lovely wine that lacks only the power of the best vintages. (ID) Inner quote mark (1/2012)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1999 Lynch-Bages, now at 20 years of age, has a modest, quite attractive bouquet of blackberry, dried fig, leather and faint touches of mint. There is still good vigor here considering its age. The palate is medium-bodied with relatively light tannins for Lynch-Bages. There is a core of sweetness here, hints of brown sugar sprinkled over the light red fruit that appears to have faded in recent years. A simple Lynch-Bages relative to recent vintages, rather conservative and missing some grip on the finish. Drink over the next 5 to 8 years. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Heavenly. Just tasted it back in the tasting bar. The aromas are so enticing - full of savory notes and smoked meats. The flavors are delicate and elegant. The acidity is still present and the wine will continue to get better, but man, does it taste good now. A tasting bar really isn't the place to experience this wine, but it'll be a while until I can pony up for one of these guys. At least we had Redwood City...

I really like 1999 Pauillacs, they’re much better balanced than 1998 and sweeter on the palate. This is a great price for a fabulous wine.
