Lot #19. Lynch-Bages 1970

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 RP.
"Tasted 14 times with consistent notes. The 1970 Lynch-Bages remains a massive, inky-colored wine with gobs of blackcurrant, cedary, ground beef, leathery flavors and aromas. This huge, ponderous wine is still youthfully powerful, but the ferocious tannins are melting away. Although it lacks finesse and elegance, it offers an immensely enjoyable, robust, generous mouthful of hedonistic claret that will last . . ." Wine Advocate #95, Oct 1994
Provenance: The Foxy Cellar
Notes: High shoulder, slightly recessed cork, very lightly wrinkled capsule, very lightly scuffed label.
