This is the “affordable” little brother to the main wine of Chateau Lynch-Bages, the excellent fifth-growth Bordeaux estate. It used to be called Chateau Haut-Bages Averous but the marketing minds behind the sibling properties figured (wisely, no doubt) that it might find greater traction with a moniker that echoed its famous big brother more closely. This red, from the great 2010 vintage, is concentrated and very dry, with a sweet berry core lifted by a sensation of minerals, set against a firm tannic spine. It should cellar well for a decade and go nicely, now or later, with roast beef or lamb. Various prices in Alta., $71.49 in N.B., $62.99 in N.S.
