more about ratings

Although I have been wrong on other occasions I rated the Lynch Bages at 98 points from the very beginning, and way before Parker (re-)discovered the greatness of this fabulous Lynch Bages. This is superrich, complex and beautiful, while refined and aristocratic. Very fine! And the 1990 goes just a step beyond the 1989 in terms of complexity and richness. One of those wines anyone who wants to experience true greatness but can not afford to try all.

This magnificent Lynch Bages has been drinking well since the day it was released and it continues to go from strength to strength. The biggest, richest, fullest-bodied Lynch Bages until the 2000, the fully mature 1990 exhibits an unbelievably explosive nose of black currants, cedarwood, herbs and spice. The majestic, classically Bordeaux aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, rich, intense wine with superb purity as well as thrilling levels of fruit, glycerin and sweetness. This beauty should continue to provide immense pleasure over the next 15+ years.
