The 2021 Lynch-Bages, picked at 34hL/ha and matured in 75% new oak for a planned 18 months, has an outstanding bouquet, beautifully-defined and sensual, a mixture of black and blueberry fruit, very fragrant. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, good body, and density, and quite precise with a tensile finish. This fans out nicely on the finish. A very classy Lynch Bages with echoes of Jean-Michel Cazes' classic from the late eighties. The 13.14% alcohol. ~94-96 Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2021 Lynch-Bages is a brooding wine. Black cherry, leather, spice and menthol add to its decidedly somber personality. It will be interesting to see how the 2021 develops during elevage. Today, the 2021 comes across as dark and heavy, with the oak not fully integrated, and less of the suave finesse that is perhaps the key Lynch Bages signature. ~92-94 Antoni Galloni, Vinous Media
The second vintage vinified in the Caze family's new winery, the 2021 Lynch-Bages unwinds in the glass with aromas of minty cassis, sweet berries, loamy soil, black truffle, and cigar wrapper, framed by nicely integrated new oak. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and muscular, it's a serious, layered, powerful, youthfully structured wine that will come together beautifully with maturation in the barrel. ~93-95 WA
