Description:

Chateau Lynch Bages 1989
Pauillac, 5eme Cru Classe
u. all into neck

"Consistently backward and dense, with enormous potential, this admirable wine will not be ready for prime time drinking for another 5-7 years. The color is not quite as opaque as the 1990's, but reveals more purple and no lightening at the edge. Hugely concentrated flavors have just begun to offer up a nose of cedar and creme de cassis. Powerful and muscular, with high tannin and superb concentration, this is Lynch Bages at its biggest and most beastly. However, everything is in balance for a stunning evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030." R. Parker, 95 pts. 06/00
12 bottles (owc)
Estimate $2,100-3,000
