2009 Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
So much crushed raspberry and hints of currants on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Second wine of Lynch Bages. Try after 2018.
Delivers a lesson in Pauillac, with sleek black currant and fig fruit melded together, laced with graphite, tobacco and roasted cedar notes and backed by a long, iron-driven finish. This has grip, but the wine is made in a more accessible style for mid-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2019.
This is the new name for Lynch-Bages's second wine, made by the young Jean-Charles Cazes, now at the helm of this esteemed estate.
