Château Lynch Bages 5ème Cru Classé 2009

The 2009 Château Lynch Bages 5ème Cru Classé Pauillac is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (76%), Merlot (18%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (2%) aged in French oak for 15 months of which 70% was new oak. Utilising satellite photography, the winemaking team, introduced intra-plot harvesting, and the harvest was performed according to the ripeness of the grapes in each small section of the vineyard. Rich, ripe and opulent the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured at Lynch Bages, as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). Gorgeous to taste, it may well remain so throughout its life, such is the ripeness of both fruit and tannin. One can imagine drinking the 09’s young to enjoy the exuberance of their fruit, but much greater pleasure will be obtained through the exercise of patience.
