2000 Lynch Bages 75CL
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.
In 1939, the Cazes family bought the Château and a renaissance then began at Château Lynch-Bages. Daring, innovative, and with a reputation for often being the last to harvest, Jean-Charles Cazes defined the style of Lynch-Bages. The wine's distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac's greatest.
The estate’s reputation as a top-quality wine producer took off in 1945 after a series of exceptional vintages. Since then, Lynch-Bages has continued to produce excellent wines, even during years considered difficult in the Bordeaux region. Jean-Michel Cazes, grandson of Jean-Charles, has worked hard to develop and refine the wine’s supple and smooth structure over the years. Vintage after vintage, the estate’s precise and excellent winemaking techniques have served to firmly establish Lynch-Bages' reputation for consistent quality.
