Wine With Bok - 10/10 Stars


Unlike the 85 Mouton, this opened up more quickly in about 30 mins and it was ready to drink. A lot of green notes, tar, cigar box, mint, woody and black fruits dominated the nose. Palate was strong with velvety tannins and good balance of acidity. For a 5th growth, it held its own against the 1st. Worthy to be among the best and should be upgraded if possible! (6/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 Points

Tasted single blind at the 1985 Bordeaux horizontal, the 1985 Château Lynch Bages was pitted against two other wines, both First Growths, and it more than held its own. In many ways it is a forerunner for the brilliant 1989 and 1990 that Jean-Michel crafted, though the 1985 has always been more elegant and comely in style. The nose is impressive after three decades with melted tar, a touch of peppermint and delineated black fruit that seem to gain intensity with each passing moment in the glass. Strangely those secondary notes of bay leaf and dried herbs make way for more primal fruit-derived scents with aeration! The palate does not disappoint. Medium rather than full-bodied, beautifully defined tannins and supremely well-judged acidity, this Lynch-Bages is just so well balanced. Hints of black truffle and sandalwood unfold towards the finish that has disarming purity and great persistence. If you want to know why the 1855 Classification screwed up placing Lynch Bages as a Fifth Growth - taste the wonderful 1985 and then the 1989 and 1990. (7/2015)

Wine Spectator - 95 Points

The 1985 was the magazine's Wine of the Year in 1988. Today it shows loads of fruit, with blackberry, licorice and fresh herb character. Full, round and velvety. Long and delicious. *Ranked #1 in Wine Spector Top 100 of 1988* (11/2007)
