Chateau Lynch-Bages 2006
A classic mature vintage, the nose offers an attractive interplay between deep, buttery black fruits, some cedar, and a cool, minty Cabernet character. The wine has plenty of structure and muscular characteristics, but beautiful fruit on the attack and alluring purity and nicely textured mouthfeel. A full-bodied finish with plenty of wrapping sweetness completes this tightly-packed Lynch-Bages.
Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The grapes are all hand picked and then carefully sorted before crushing. A very strict selection is made prior to blending and the wine is traditionally aged in oak barrels before bottling.
