A red wine from Pauillac, power and flexibility

Echo de Lynch-Bages is the second wine of Chateau Lynch-Bages. This cuvee is produced in the Pauillac appellation, from a vineyard on the hillsides of the Garonne. Echo de Lynch-Bages is only aged in barrels. Echo de Lynch-Bages is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot.

2016 for Chateau Lynch-Bages experienced extreme weather conditions, but produced an exceptional wine. After blossoming, summer settled in on June 25th. Characterised by its heat and dryness, rain saved the maturation process on September 13th. The vines received the water that they needed in order to mature perfectly. 

Echo de Lynch-Bages 2016 proudly emits fresh fruit fragrances. These fragrances are complemented by woody and spicy notes, by-products of the ageing process. It is well-balanced and reveals roundseductive tannins. This is a second wine that beautifully combines flexibility and power

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Echo de Lynch Bages is deep garnet-purple colored and opens with kirsch, redcurrant jelly and baked blackcurrants with nuances of tilled soil and dried herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, packed, elegant, refreshing and tightly wound with firm tannins, finishing long.
