Another positive release in the 2019 campaign today with UK favourite Lynch Bages released into the market.

Pleasingly, over 20% down on their 2018 release – and being 10% below the 2015 release, this looks like an excellent option for us.

This wine is coming out at £395 per case of 6.

Well supported by the critics as well – this bodes well.

97 points, Jane Anson, Decanter – This takes hold from the first moment and powers along, delivering a ton of black brambly fruit, liquorice, grilled cedar and Pauillac confidence. The tannins are pretty chewy, really closing in on the end of play, giving no doubt that this is going to age slowly and for many decades, but there is a creaminess to the overall structure that is already evident.

96-97 points, James Suckling – A tight and very focused young red with redcurrant, tile and blackberry undertones. Lead pencil, too. It’s full-bodied with very polished, creamy tannins and lots of intense dark fruit. Compact fruit and tannins. Structured.
