Chateau Lynch Bages

This is my go-to Left Bank Bordeaux. Elegant. Classic. Even though this was originally designated as a 5th Cru house in the 1855 classification system that still exists today, this house consistently punches above its weight with the ones at the top. Superb value at a fraction of the price of 1st Crus. This is a wine that grown men ask to be bathed in before they die.
