Tasting Notes

Vinous – 88

The 2006 Lynch-Bages has an airy bouquet, open but missing the same fruit intensity as other vintages. Light wild hedgerow, bilberry and touches of seaweed emerge but never fully get into fifth gear. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rigid tannins that frame the dusky black fruit. More austere than vintages from this era, it just tapers a little towards the finish. Not bad, but missing a bit of substance and length. Tasted at the Lynch-Bages vertical at the château. [Neal Martin, 18/07/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2030

Robert Parker – 93

Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Lynch Bages has another quite vivacious bouquet with lively black cherries, kirsch and wild mint aromas that do not hold back. I love the purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine supple tannin, well-judged acidity, a gentle grip in the mouth, and plenty of lightly spiced and surprisingly intense fruit on the bravura finish. The Cazes family oversaw a very sophisticated Lynch-Bages in this vintage that may well surpass many peoples’ expectations. Tasted January 2016. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035

JancisRobinson.com – 15.5

Tasted blind. Meaty and quite complex on the nose but a bit dilute and watery on the palate. Very drying end. A bit dull. [22/04/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030
