2015 Bordeaux – Château Lynch Bages , Le Gay & La Violette

by Charles Lea

Out this morning is en primeur classic 2015 CHÂTEAU LYNCH BAGES 5ème Cru Classé PauillacPRIMEUR FAVOURITES at £890 per case of 12 bottles.

Creamy-rich, lovely top-note of fine red fruit. The density is all here, and this very much does what Lynch bages does. Big tannins, but all nicely wrapped in fruit and smooth body. Feels like it has a high proportion of Cabernet and this gives it more elegance and a sense of concentration on the long finish. Lovely length. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. 93 – 94/100 L&S  – also 17+ Jancis Robinson MW, 93 – 95/100 Neal Martin, 94 Tim Atkin MW

Also out this morning is Le Gay, Pomerol at £760, and La Violette, its tiny sister property, micro-vinified in op-topped barrels, at £950 per six bottles. Very limited stock on this.
