Description

93-95  Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2018 Echo De Lynch-Bages is the second wine of Lynch Bages and is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc brought up all in once-used barrels. Cassis, graphite, lead pencil, and graphite notes all emerge from this deep, shockingly concentrated wine that has full-bodied richness, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish. The stats on this second wine are telling, and it’s 13.9% alcohol, 3.57 pH, and an IPT of 87. It’s one serious, blockbuster-styled second wine that shows how successful some of the second wines in the vintage are.” (5/2019)

93-94  James Suckling
“Very layered and dense second wine of Lynch this year. Medium to full body, juicy fruit and polished and chewy tannins. Will need time.” (4/2019)

91-93  Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“The 2018 Echo de Lynch Bages is a rich, sensual and inviting second wine. Dark cherry, pomegranate, mint, blood orange and spice infuse this racy, sumptuous second wine from Lynch Bages. Plush fruit and soft, silky contours add to the wine’s immediacy and sheer appeal. This is very nicely done. Echo is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.” (4/2019)

90-92+  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc and without any new oak, the very deep purple-black colored 2018 Echo de Lynch Bages rolls seductively out of the glass with fragrant notes of candied violets, rose hip tea and fragrant soil over a core of crushed blackberries, warm blackcurrants and kirsch plus wafts of chocolate mint and crushed rocks. Full, rich, wonderfully concentrated and well structured, it has a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long.” (4/2019)

92  Decanter
“There is clear Pauillac typicity here – you’re certainly getting a lot of bang for your buck with Echo in 2018. The tannins are pronounced with weight and shoulders that power the autumnal fruits and black pepper spicing through the palate. No new oak was used and yet the concentration from the fruit itself seems more than enough.” (4/2019) Jane Anson
