Description

Jean-Charles Cazes and his team have made a very serious Lynch-Bages this year. It exhibits a deep garnet-red colour and comes at you with very expressive notes of dark fruit, cassis, blackcurrants and a distinctive thread of mint. On the palate, it is full-bodied with ripe tannins and there is a great swathe of creamy cassis throughout. The finish is long-lasting and polished, leaving 2016’s tell-tale note of acidity and length.

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 19%, Cabernet Franc 4%, Petit Verdot 2%
