Tasting Notes Details

Chateau Lynch-Bages

Bordeaux blend - 1959

When you hang out with Jancis Robinson and Fiona Morrison - the lady of Le Pin - chateaux owners open fine wines like this at dinner. Now in his 80s, Jean-Michel Cazes hosted dinner for us at the family's Caf? Lavinale in the hamlet of Bages. This was was nearly 60 years old when we opened it and was still rich and fruity. Very fine and sweet with lovely delicacy. It was still fresh and pure although had a slight warmth on the finish. Shame I had to drive the ladies home that night or I would've had another glass.
