Dom Perignon and Lynch Bages a vintage selection.

Jan 12, 2019,15:13 PM

I had the chance to consume some the bottle from my birthday reserve. 

In this case it was for the family member from 1996 so i picke the 1996 Dom Perignon which is one of the best years to rival tge 1982 Dom. And from Pauillac i went with the 1996 CH Lynch Bages. 

The DP was like a fine aged white with tiny bubbles. Wonderfully enjoyable. The Lynch Bages was exquisite ahain a fantastic year and it was still strong enough to last another decade. 

I have a small supply of each along with a nice selection of others from 1996 to enjoy for future birthdays.

Dom is good nearly always while Lynch Bages in my books is much better than its 5th growth would suggest. Great vintages, too. Enjoy! Kari

I am a big lynch Bages fan.

Lynch Baget and Pontet Canet should be 2nd growth. Best, Kari

I hae just a case of 2005, 2009, 2010 and 2015. Soon 2016 will come to the bonded storage.

In my opinion Lynch Bages and Pontet Canet offer great value compared to 1st and 2nd growths. Best, Kari

...more than ready to be drunk,yet with lots of life ahead. Glad you enjoyed it. That and the 95 for both the Dom and the Lynch Bages are great pair of sister vintages. My lynch bages are all from the 2000 + vintages.---still in storage although very temp... 

Very nice. We had '98 Dom and '89 Lynch over the holidays.

Decent, but neither was as good as the '96s, I'm sure. Cheers, John

I’m sure that with that line up, a great time was enjoyed by all. Now I’m left wondering what was on deck when said member turned 21 a couple of years back? Cheers, Alex

I have to pace things but was good. Next 10 birthdays are assured.
