This was a gift from a friend. It was laying in a closet at ambient room temp for 30-odd years, so I was nervous to open it, but it was perfect. So complex and fragrant. Acid and tannin still seemingly youthful. Wow!

1970. Past its prime. Pleasant but nothing more. For a Lynch Bages I was expecting more. Nothing like the 1959 or 1961 vintages.
