1855 Bordeaux Wine Classification (Fifth Growth)
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
"A sensational effort for the vintage, this textured, opulent, superb Lynch Bages is already strutting its stuff and should easily last for 20 years. Medium to full-bodied with an opaque dense purple color, notes of flowers and cassis, a layered texture that builds incrementally in the mouth and tremendous purity and depth, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Bravo!" - 93 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (March 2011)
