Echo de Lynch Bages 92js 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92 Points, James Suckling: "Aromas of currants and fresh herbs. Medium to full body, a soft and juicy texture and a long finish. Juicy yet tight. Excellent second wine. Better in 2020." 2/17 91 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2014 Echo de Lynch-Bages is dense, pliant and quite deep for a second wine. Élevage has softened some of the rough edges that the wine showed in its youth. Today, I am surprised by how primary and dense it is. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years. There is little in the way of aromatic or flavor development at this stage, and the wine feels very closed. The blend is 73 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 27 % Merlot, the highest %age of Cabernet since 2001." 2/17

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
