2014 Lynch Bages Blanc, Bordeaux (Pre-Arrival)
Dense and tangy with dried pineapples, lemon rind and hints of stone. Full-bodied, flavorful and bright.
Fresh makrut lime and white peach flavors mingle here, with a shortbread note adding texture to the finish. Should fill out a touch more. (Web-2015) (JM)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Blanc de Lynch Bages 2014 is a blend of 52% Sauvignon Blanc, 28% Sémillon and 20% Muscadelle raised in 45% new wood. It has a crisp, fresh pear and green apple-scented bouquet, the oak neatly disguised. The palate has a twist of bitter lemon on the entry, with good weight in the mouth and is lively and quite spicy toward the finish with a touch of lemongrass on the aftertaste. Not bad at all. (NM)
The just-bottled 2014 Blanc de Lynch-Bages is intensely aromatic, with plenty of sweet, tropical-leaning notes from the significant presence of Muscadelle in the blend. Orange peel, white flowers, Chamomile and lightly honeyed notes are laced into the expressive finish. The blend is 52% Sauvignon Blanc, 28% Semillon and 20% Muscadelle. (AG)
