Description:

Chateau Lynch Bages 2000
Pauillac, 5eme Cru Classe
"Beginning to open magnificently, the still dense purple-colored 2000 reveals a blossoming bouquet of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years." R. Parker for TWA, 97 pts. 08/11
12 bottles (owc)
Estimate $1,800-2,400
