5 stars "Fabulous! A lot of complexity in this wine. Smoky and tobacco flavors with cassis aromas. On the palate, full-bodied, smooth tannins and a lot of depth. Long lingering finish. Outstanding experience! "

97 points "Our wine of the year in 1988. Muscular but shapely, with fabulous toasted oak, berry and currant on the palate. It's full-bodied and has a long, long finish. This was the better of two bottles.--The Bordeaux 50. Best after 1997." Best 1997-

92 points "The 1985 has been totally disarming, seductive, and sexy since birth. Its corpulence, medium to full-bodied personality, low acidity, attractive silkiness, and copious quantities of herb-tinged cassis fruit have always made this wine a winner. It is beginning to display a few signs that it is at its peak of maturity and will not get any better. In fact, it might be best consumed over the next 5-10 years. As it sat in the glass, the 1985 faded more than any other vintage, but its immense up-front pleasure cannot be denied. This is a wine to decant right before serving, and not to linger over. It is a beautiful, elegant style of Lynch Bages. It is sure to please both connoisseurs and neophytes." Best -2005
