Echo de Lynch Bages 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

90-91 Points, James Suckling: "A silky and firm wine with pretty fruit and spice character. Full and fine. Second wine of Lynch and makes the grade." 4/16 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Echo de Lynch Bages is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot, matured in one-year-old barrels. It has a fragrant, finely tuned bouquet of blackberry, pencil lead and a touch of citrus fruit - scents that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, the acidity well judged, gentle in the mouth, but building in fruit intensity to a pleasurable graphite-tinged finish. One of those deuxième vins where more is less. This is a well-crafted Echo...echo...echo..." 4/16 #224 Wine Spectator: "Lively, with a fresh savory edge to the mix of red currant, blood orange and cherry notes, backed by a smooth, relatively open finish." 4/16 Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Echo de Lynch Bages is forward, succulent and quite expressive. A wine that will drink well early, the 2015 captures all of the radiance of the vintage, with good freshness and an appealing, mid-weight personality. The Echo is a quintessential 2015 endowed with lovely depth and tons of near-term appeal." 4/16

Château Lynch-Bages was owned by the Lynch family for three quarters of a century. They descended from John Lynch, a young Irishman from Galway who was chased out of his country in 1691. In the 18th century, Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch, mayor of Bordeaux, inherited the estate and handed over management to his brother Michel Lynch, who was also mayor of Pauillac during the French Revolution. Jean-Charles Cazes, highly respected in the Médoc for his experience in viticul- ture and winemaking, bought the property in 1934. With his son André, he devoted all his energy to Lynch-Bages for more than 35 years. In 1974, his grand-son Jean-Michel Cazes set about restructuring and managing the estate and recently, in 2006, handed over the running of the property to his son Jean-Charles. Read less
