"Het alternatief voor de 1e Grand Cru Classés"

Lynch-Bages is sinds 1939 in bezit van de familie Cazes. Het is één van de klassiekers van de appellation (en dat is een compliment!). Het behoort sinds de jaren 30 tot de hoogst gewaardeerde châteaus op de linkeroever. Dé manier om aan de top te blijven is door te blijven innoveren.

Het huidige team onder leiding van Jean-Charles Cazes (JC voor vrienden) heeft veel oog voor de eigenschappen van ieder afzonderlijk perceel voor wat betreft druivenras, expositie en bodem. JC zet geavanceerde middelen in om ultra-gedetailleerde inzichten te verkrijgen over de wijngaarden; denk aan drones, satellieten en GPS. In 2020 opende hij een hypermoderne kelder. Dit alles betaalt zich regelrecht in topkwaliteit uit.

Kenner Jane Anson die woont en werkt in Bordeaux, zegt het volgende over de ontwikkelingen op Lynch-Bages: ‘Another Pauillac Super-Second that has demonstrated how hard work, passionate engagement in winemaking and serious investment in micro-managing their soils can elevate what was already a great wine to something quite exceptional.’

Lynch Bages staat bekend als big boy en wordt altijd als gespierd en klassiek omschreven. Daaraan ten grondslag ligt het hoge aandeel cabernet sauvignon en de opvoeding gedurende 18 maanden op 75% nieuw eiken. Een Lynch Bages heeft tijd nodig om zich volledig te ontplooien (2022: 35+ jaar).

Tijdens de En Primeur proeverijen werden wij volledig in beslag genomen door de nu al mythische jaargang 2022 van Lynch-Bages. Een Pauillac uit het boekje. Een heuse krachtpatser (Parker: ‘One of the vintage's most powerful, muscular wines’).

Lynch-Bages 2022 krijgt fabuleuze ratings van de critici. Zo geeft de bekende Amerikaanse criticus James Suckling de hoge score van (98-99)/100: dezelfde score als Latour Rothschild en Mouton Rothschild en amper één puntje lager dan Lafite Rothschild (99-100).

Wow. Blackcurrants, blueberries, blackberries and flowers. Full-bodied with beautifully integrated tannins that melt into the wine. Persistent and precise. A fantastic wine for the cellar. 66% cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot.

One of the vintage's most powerful, muscular wines is the 2022 Lynch-Bages, a full-bodied, broad-shouldered Pauillac that unfurls in the glass with aromas of cassis, cherries, mint, pencil shavings and petroleum jelly, framed by nicely integrated new oak. Liberally extracted, its deep core of fruit is underpinned by an imposing chassis of rich, powdery tannin and lively acids. Always rather forbidding from barrel, Lynch Bages always seems to come together in bottle, and the 2022 has the makings of another success for this address.

The Grand Vin 2022 Château Lynch Bages checks in as 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It actually reminds me slightly of the 2019, and
while it's a classic Lynch Bages powerhouse, it has beautiful balance and purity. Cassis, graphite, lead pencil, and chalky minerality all define the aromatics, and it's full-bodied, with terrific tannins and a layered, incredibly impressive profile that continues to open and evolve with time in the glass. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Full on inky purple in colour, this is
sculpted and full of character. Intense, not just a reflection of the vintage but in the increasing concentration found in Lynch Bages over the past decade. Delivers so much character, wtih charcoal, soot, campfire, liquorice, slate, bilberry, cassis. Hugely impressive and complex, will age for decades. As it opens and those fierce tannins loosen their grip a little, the floral character of the Cabernet Sauvignon becomes more clear. It's austere right now, with shoulders and muscles, but I am fully on board. One to wait for. 75% new oak. Harvest September 12 to 24.

‘The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, beautifully balanced, very harmonious yet there is an enormous backbone here that (again) is
reminiscent of Mouton’ 

Blackcurrant and bramble fruit with savoury herbal nuances on the nose, this smells rich and potent. Tense and focussed, compact from the get go, present tannins give grip and hold. This is definitely not out to charm, more serious, stern and focussed but there's such overall precision. This is in high definition, supremely controlled and well worked with mouthfilling ripe tannins. I like the chewy aspect and there’s balancing acidity, hidden now by the density, that will sustain the wine for decades to come. Floral notes and some minerality come through giving the nuance so it’s not all heft, but there’s clear muscle on show. A long finish gives the sense of structure and style. An impressive wine. 95 IPT. 3.71pH. Ageing 18 months, 75% new oak. 3% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 4.1 g/L total acidity.

Deep dark ruby, opaque core, purple reflections, brightening on the rim. Delicate leather and nougat, hints of mint and cassis, black forest berries in the background, orange zest. Juicy palate, complex, blackberries, ripe cherries, some nougat, ripe, supporting tannins, mineral and long lasting, certain ageing potential.

Opaque in color, the wine is packed with with smoky cassis, blackberries, tobacco leaf, black cherries, licorice, flowers, chocolate, and blackberry liqueur. Powerful, full-bodied, rich, dense and intense, the wine is long, vibrant and intense. 2022 is a palate staining wine with never before seen levels of concentration. But, even with all that concentration, the wine remains balanced, fresh, and Pauillac in style. The finish holds your attention for 50 seconds or more while it builds and refreshes. The wine blends 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, 14.2% ABV. 3.71 pH. The harvest took place September 12 - September 24. The yields were 35 hectoliters per hectare. The Grand Vin was produced from 70% of the harvest.

The 2022 Lynch-Bages is composed of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it is a little closed to start, soon revealing evocative creme de cassis, blueberry pie, and chocolate-covered cherries notes with suggestions of cast-iron pan, black truffles, and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is taut with muscular black fruit and loads of mineral sparks, framed by very firm, grainy tannins and a refreshing line, finishing long and earthy.

Aromatically spicy and exuberant, the fruit generous and full. Layers of fruit on the palate backed by an impressive tannic frame. Real power and persistence. Harmonious as well. Long life ahead.

The 2022 Lynch-Bages was picked 12 September, around 15 days earlier than usual until 24 September at around 35hL/ha. Aged for 18 months in 75% new oak, it has a backward nose that demands a lot of encouragement. This is not as immediate as the 2016 or 2019 at the same stage. Powerful blackberry and boysenberry fruit, cedar and light tobacco notes, this feels like an edifice of aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, beautifully balanced, very harmonious yet there is an enormous backbone here that (again) is reminiscent of Mouton. Extremely long on the finish, this will need its barrel maturation to fully knit together and it is going to be a Pauillac for the long haul.
