More linear, young St.-Emilion with dark-fruit and mineral undertones. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and silky. Driven.
The 2017 Lynsolence has a high-toned bouquet with blueberry and light cassis fruit, just a touch of iodine in the background. It feels modern in style but manages to retain decent definition. The palate is medium-bodied with pretty black cherry and blackcurrant notes matched by a fine thread of acidity and a discrete pencil lead tincture on the finish. Very fine.
The 2017 Lynsolence is deep garnet-purple in color and scented of plum preserves, blueberry tart and spice box with a waft of damp soil. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy with a racy backbone and sustained, grippy finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
