Echo De Lynch Bages, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2017
Grapes: 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, aged for 12 months in one year old barrels.
The "second" wine of 5eme Chateau Lynch Bages.
Like its big brother, Echo de Lynch-Bages displays the characteristic taste, aromas and length of Pauillac wines. As an echo of the first wine, it receives the same care and attention from the vine to the cellars. It is the result of a selection of Lynch-Bages' youngest vines and specific plots which represent between 25 to 40 % of the harvest depending on the vintage. Echo de Lynch-Bages is round, soft and seductive in its youth with outstanding potential for bottle age.
Chateau tasting note:
Echo de Lynch-Bages 2017 has a brilliant colour and displays lovely purplish-blue garnet hues. Attractive savoury aromas on the nose, transpose into a rich and elegant palate of fresh red fruits (redcurrant and raspberry).
Fine tannins combine with refreshing acidity to provide a very nice long finish.
Critics' tasting notes:
"Black core, purple rim. Intense, pure cassis on the nose – essence of Cabernet. Super-supple, extreme finesse in the tannins and really elegant while still having lots of dark fruit. Complete, refined, and fruity. Fine, dark-fruited finish. (JH)"
16.5/20 points, Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2018
"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Echo de Lynch Bages has a rather earthy nose of truffles and damp soil over a core of baked plums, boysenberries and warm cassis. Medium-bodied, the palate features a chewy backbone and just enough black fruits, with an earthy finish."
89/100 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, March 2020
