Critical Acclaim

"Like so many wines in this vintage, this shows black-currant acidity. It's lively and fruity, with the firm tannins providing a counterpoint.
Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points"
96 Points

"This is quite wonderful with a beautiful balance of ultra-fine tannins and pretty fruits from currant to blueberries. Full-bodied. Delicious to taste. Deft winemaking here for the vintage."
94 Points

"This has solid guts, with plum, currant and blackberry fruit melded together at the core, while notes of charcoal, warm tobacco and singed iron form the backdrop. Should be very solid when it comes together after some cellaring."
92 Points

"The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage."
90 Points

"Opaque purple-ruby. Lead pencil, coffee, black pepper and blackberry on the nose. Enters sweet and suave, then turns lean and a bit dry in the middle, showing only moderate concentration to its red cherry and peppery flavors. Picks up some flesh and volume at the back, finishing good persistence, smooth tannins and a lingering note of cassis. A charming Lynch-Bages that’s more forward than usual and will probably be best drunk over the near to medium term.

Range: 87-90 Points"
