5th Grand Cru Classé in 1855

- +

The year 1995 was a great success for the Bordeaux vineyard. The climate was contrasted, marked by rains from January to March and then by very good weather from April to September. The vines grew steadily throughout the season. The hot and dry summer tipped the balance in favor of a great vintage. The harvest finally took place in complete serenity and in adequate conditions.

The color is still deep purple, almost black, with brilliant tiled reflections.

The nose presents a sublime bouquet of evolution, with notes of ripe black fruits, undergrowth, truffle and licorice. There are also hints of cigar box and tobacco leaf.

The attack is delicate and complex, revealing a tannic structure still present and a lot of concentration. Releasing beautiful tertiary flavors of cooked fruits and roasting, it stretches for a long time without ever losing freshness and density. The finish is long, subtly peppery and very persistent. A Pauillac with exceptional staying power.

Food and wine pairing:

Chateau Lynch-Bages 1995 will go wonderfully with a dish of fresh tagliatelle with white pepper and black Périgord truffle. For a meat dish, enjoy it with a matured rib of beef cooked on vine shoots from the Médoc, a slab of truffled venison, a rack of lamb or a roast shoulder of wild boar.

For a pairing with cheese, choose pressed and uncooked cheeses: cantal, old mimolette, morbier, saint-nectaire and tomme de Savoie. It can also be enjoyed with Brie de Meaux, Gouda or Salers.

For dessert, enjoy it with a black forest, an opera or a creamy chocolate and almond cake.

Ageing potential and tasting:

Château Lynch-Bages 1995 embodies the perfect illustration of the great wines of Pauillac built for aging. It has now reached maturity and is ready to be tasted, its potential will always be fully perceptible.

To do this, be sure to place the bottle in the serving room at room temperature the night before. Ideally, open it 4 to 5 hours before tasting, decanting is not necessary.

The bottles should be kept in the cellar, protected from light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
