Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Ex-cellar bottle tasted blind at the Lynch Bages vertical. This has a superb nose, very lifted and well-defined, cedar, blackcurrant, smoke and a touch of burnt toast. Just soars from the glass. The palate is full-bodied, ripe tannins, beautiful balance and poise with a sense of controlled opulence towards the finish. It comes across very natural, black cherries, blueberry, a touch of orange zest. This is certainly an over-performing wine for the vintage and shows better than previous bottles … (NM) (9/2009)

Garnet-tinged dark red. Aromatic nose displays a floral, delicately spicy quality to its red fruit, shoe polish, cedar and tobacco aromas. More red fruits in the mouth, with mineral and loamy nuances on the linear, moderately persistent finish. Better than a number of more evolved bottles of this vintage that I’ve had over the years.
