80% Sauvignon Blanc
Crisp and fresh with an overtone of citrus and a long acid finish.
Gorgeous to taste, it may well remain so throughout its life, such is the ripeness of both fruit and tannin.
Lynch-Bages 2005 is tannic, firm & young - excellent fruit and balance - a superb vintage!
Wonderful bouquet of fresh crushed blackberries, and typical characteristics of graphite. Great fruit and concentration and plenty of tannins on the long finish.
Striking violets and blueberries here, Some leafy note too. The palate adds some light, creamy oak, tastes of summer-berry pudding and supple tannins to close.
When tasted in early November 1999, the wines were tannic, concentrated and powerful, but very well balanced. Now at 20 years after the vintage, the 2000 holds on to its primary fruit whilst really starting to reveal the classic Musar identity, balancing out the characteristic sweet spice and desiccated fruit notes with more evolved elements of leather, tar, tobacco and a hint of game. These complex aromas and flavours are lifted with a fresh lick of acidity that will ensure the wine will continue to age gracefully for years to come.
The cooler 1998 has an elegant Cinsault dominance; the colour is lighter and more delicately perfumed than a typical vintage. Despite this initial impression, the wine is deceptively powerful with a vibrant acidity and fresh, soft red fruit flavours and a very long, spicy finish. The ideal partner to mushroom and game dishes.
An attractive clear ruby colour and aroma to match, with a subtle peppery spice and ripe red fruits. This continues through to the palate where sweet-ripened red fruit dominate the glass with a slight savoury note and soft, elegant finish.
Deep garnet in colour. Blackcurrants, blueberries prunes and strawberries on the nose with a hint of violets. A richly fruited wine – the palate bursts with an explosion of red cherries, strawberries, blackberries with a little black pepper and spice with a beautiful soft texture.
Deep salmon/orange-pink. Soft red fruit, peach and quince notes with an underlying subtle spice note in the background. Confirmation of the aromas with further soft red fruit flavour, as well as stone fruits which compliments the wine's refreshing and youthful acidity. Ideal as an aperitif or with Mediterranean salads, fish and charcuterie.
