Chateau Lynch Bages 1990 (NW)

Chateau Lynch Bages 1990:

Subtle, aromatic nose
Dark berries, spice, leather
Lengthy and smooth, with endless layers

Great wine! It was a special treat to see this wine emerge from the cellar. We had been invited to dinner by new friends who had just spent 18 months renovating an old New Hampshire farmhouse. They put together an excellent dinner with lamb chops and a number of other delicious courses and the wine paired extremely well. Our hosts have a real appreciation for Bordeaux and had cellared a few cases of this wine since it's release in 1993. With 15 years of age, this wine is considered to be maturing nicely by the critics. The store price for this wine today would be $150-$200 per bottle. Very generous and very enjoyable. Raise a glass!
