Description:

*Chateau Lynch Bages 1988
Pauillac, 5eme Cru Classe
"One of the big surprises is how delicious this wine has turned out. It is a beautiful, classic claret. Dark ruby-colored with purple hues, it reveals aromas of dried herbs, smoke, leather, grilled meats, and copious black cherry and currant fruit. Medium-bodied, powerful, rich, and surprisingly evolved, this vintage has hit its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for another 10-12 years." R. Parker, 92 pts. 06/00
12 bottles (owc)
Estimate $900-1,400
