The 2005 vintage is one of our greatest vintages of recent decades.

2005 vintage characteristics in a nutshell:
• A warm summer,
• Near-drought conditions,
• Harvest remained largely free of rainfall, and the fruit was brought in by relaxed and happy workers. The potential of the vintage was already clear, even before the first fermentations were finished.

Lynch-Bages 2005 was aged in 80% new oak which is the most we have ever used, feeling it necessary
to cloak the exceptional fruit and powerful tannins.

Wine Advocate #196 - Aug 2011 - Robert Parker:
« As one might suspect, the dense purple-hued 2005 is still tannic, firm and young, with concentrated
blackberry and cassis fruit, beautiful ripeness, a full-bodied mouthfeel and undeniable youthfulness.
Tasting like a 2-3 year old wine rather one that has passed its sixth birthday, it is potentially one of the
longest lived Lynch Bages since the remarkable 1989 and 2000. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030+. »
