Château Lynch-Bages 2016 – 5ème Grand Cru Classé, Pauillac

The nose is fruity, fresh, racy, structured and offers powerful and finesse. It reveals slight notes of fresh/ripe wild blackberry, cassis, raspberry and cherry associated with hints of spices as well as slight hints of gray pepper and a very discreet hint of mocha (on the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, mineral, fresh, racy and offers a beautiful structure, fat as well as a hint of salin minerality. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, fresh/ripe strawberry and slight notes of juicy cassis, fresh/ripe red berries associated with discreet hints of redcurrant, toasted oak/vanilla and a very discreet hint of chocolate. Tannins are well-built. Good length and gourmand persistence.
