James Suckling 98-99 Points: Wow. Blackcurrants, blueberries, blackberries and flowers. Full-bodied with beautifully integrated tannins that melt into the wine. Persistent and precise. A fantastic wine for the cellar. 66% cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot.”

Jeb Dunnuck 96-98+ Points: “The Grand Vin 2022 Château Lynch Bages checks in as 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It actually reminds me slightly of the 2019, and while it's a classic Lynch Bages powerhouse, it has beautiful balance and purity. Cassis, graphite, lead pencil, and chalky minerality all define the aromatics, and it's full-bodied, with terrific tannins and a layered, incredibly impressive profile that continues to open and evolve with time in the glass. Tasted twice with consistent notes.”

Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider 96-98 Points: “ Opaque in color, the wine is packed with with smoky cassis, blackberries, tobacco leaf, black cherries, licorice, flowers, chocolate, and blackberry liqueur. Powerful, full-bodied, rich, dense and intense, the wine is long, vibrant and intense. 2022 is a palate staining wine with never before seen levels of concentration. But, even with all that concentration, the wine remains balanced, fresh, and Pauillac in style. The finish holds your attention for 50 seconds or more while it builds and refreshes. The wine blends 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, 14.2% ABV. 3.71 pH. The harvest took place September 12 - September 24. The yields were 35 hectoliters per hectare. The Grand Vin was produced from 70% of the harvest. Drink from 2027-2060”

Antonio Galloni, Vinous 95-97 Points: “ The 2022 Lynch-Bages shows all the classic Lynch layers, but dialed up to the maximum. Rich, deep and explosive, the 2022 packs tremendous punch. Sweet dark cherry, Spice, leather, menthol, licorice, plum and mocha all open with time in the glass The tannins are imposing, and yet there is more than enough fruit to balance things out, at least to some degree I expect the 2022 Will need a decade to shed some of its tannin, but it is formidable, even in the early going. Impressive. Tasted two times. “ This is the third time in history we are above 14% in alcohol, the others were 2018 and 2019," Jean-Charles Cazes explained”

Neal Martin, Vinous 95-97 Points: “ The 2022 Lynch-Bages was picked 12 September, around 15 days earlier than usual until 24 September at around 35hL/ha. Aged for 18 months in 75% new oak, it has a backward nose that demands a lot of encouragement. This is not as immediate as the 2016 or 2019 at the same stage. Powerful blackberry and boysenberry fruit, cedar and light tabacco notes, this feels like an edifice of aromas. The palate is medium- bodied with grippy tannins, beautifully balanced, very harmonious yet there is an enormous backbone here that (again) is reminiscent of Mouton. Extremely long on the finish, this Will need its barrel maturation to fully knit together and it is going to be a Pauillac for the long haul.”

Falstaff 97 Points: “ Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung. Zart nach Velours und Nugat, ein Hauch von Minze und Cassis, schwarze Waldbeeren sind unterlegt, Orangenzesten. Saftig, komplex, schwarze Beeren, reife Kirschen, etwas Nugat, reife, tragende Tannine, mineralisch und lange anhaftend, sicheres Entwicklungspotenzial.’’

The Wine Independent 95-97 Points: “ The 2022 Lynch-Bages is composed of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it is a little closed to start, soon revealing evocative creme de cassis, blueberry pie, and chocolate-covered cherries notes with suggestions of cast-iron pan, black truffles, and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is taut with muscular black fruit and loads of mineral sparks, framed by very firm, grainy tannins and a refreshing line, finishing long and earthy. pH 3.71, TPI 95.”

Le Figaro 95-96 Points: “Un bouquet charmeur’’ ‘’ Une sensation de soyeux, de velouté et des notes d'iris, de graphite participent à un bouquet charmeur. Le velouté des tannins, la fraîcheur de la matière et un côté étincelant donnent un vin juste, délicat et soyeux.’’

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 93-96 Points: “One of the vintage's most powerful, muscular wines is the 2022 Lynch-Bages, a full-bodied, broad-shouldered Pauillac that unfurls in the glass with aromas of cassis, cherries, mint, pencil shavings and petroleum jelly, framed by nicely integrated new oak. Liberally extracted, its deep core of fruit is underpinned by an imposing chassis of rich, powdery tannin and lively acids. Always rather forbidding from barrel, Lynch Bages always seems to come together in bottle, and the 2022 has the makings of another success for this address.”
