2011 is outstanding for its display of well ripened fruit, fine, plump tannins, and a good freshness to ensure classic balance. The wine's distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac's greatest. It combines structure, finesse and elegance, offering generous aromas in its youth and developing deeper complexities with bottle age. An intense, concentrated wine bringing exceptional pleasure.
Robert Parker 90-93/100
The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage.

Wine Spectator 92-95/100
This has nice weight and intensity, with a solid core of plum, blackberry and cassis that's offset by a racy, spicy frame. Very sleek through the finish, with latent depth in reserve.
Fine density of blackcurrant Cabernet fruit, very good natural richness and very ripe tannins.
