Château Lynch Bages 2015
The chosen blend for the 2015 Lynch-Bages gives to Chateau Lynch-Bages the chance to highlight the Cabernet Sauvignons perfection and vibrancy. The 70% Cabernet Sauvignon (very concentrated with remarkably ripe tannins) share the blend with 24% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Drink 2025-2060.
The 2015 Lynch-Bages has a fresh, vibrant bouquet of blackberry, graphite, cedarwood and just a touch of spice. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh acidity and well-balanced, but not quite as complex as the aromatics augur. While I like the precision here, it just does not kick in as I expected.
