Red wine

Château Lynch-Bages, 5ème cru classé 2010

RRP £116

This bombards your nostrils with rich, full fruit – it’s like you’re bobbing around in the vats with the juice. The wine is so open-armed and inviting, but might crush you with its friendly-giant hug. There’s more zing and acidic lift on the palate which carries the opulent fruit and brings energy. This needs years to soften and recede a bit from its almost bellicose concentration and sheer magnitude – it multiplies and swells in the mouth.
