En Primeur Chateau Lynch Bages 2016 is available for sale
Echo de Lynch Bages is the second wine of Château Lynch Bages, an excellent wine which consistently outperforms its fifth growth classification and is regularly ranked in the same league as second growths. Its distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac’s greatest. The average age for vines is 30 years with some being as old as 60 and the grand vin is matured for 15 months in 60% new oak.
“The 2016 Echo de Lynch Bages is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, representing about one-third of the total production. It has a clean and precise bouquet, very polished and developing crushed violet scents with time. The palate is medium-bodied with quite crunchy, firm tannin on the entry. Quite saline in the mouth, masculine and grippy with just a little toughness on the finish that should mellow by the time of bottling. Best give this Deuxième Vin a couple of years in bottle if you can. Drink: 2020-2032” – 89/89pts Neil Martin, robertparker.com, Apr 2017
