1996 Château Lynch-Bages

Red Bordeaux blend.
$349.00 at LCBO

Another great opportunity to taste an amazing wine!

Dark red in the glass with visible singes of aging.  Lighter, bricky color on the rim and on the core.
Intense bouquet of earth, spice, dry berries, pencil.
On the palate great balance of tannins and acidity. I"d say, this wine is ready to drink, but still can age for a few years.
Dry, with flavour of cherries, black currant, plums. Very elegant.
Great, long finish with mint and fruit taste.
