2018 Blanc de Lynch Bages, Bordeaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407914 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This wine has a lovely complexity with balance and lift and does that thing where it waits for a heartbeat, then makes you wait for a heartbeat, before releasing its stone fruit and succulent, slate-tinged citrus. The plots are on the west side of the appellation, often 1.5oC lower than at main Lynch Bages, with more limestone in the subsoils helping keep the balance that is evident here. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

90-93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A lively thyme note pierces the core of white peach and white asparagus flavors. Offers a racy edge, with jasmine and white peach details in reserve. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle. (JM, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From vines just to the west of the estate and mostly Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 Château Lynch-Bages Blanc is a solid effort, offering classic notes of lemon curd, white flowers, and subtle minerality, medium body, good freshness and purity, and a clean, dry finish.

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Blanc de Lynch Bages is showing a little reduction, opening out to notions of warm peaches, passion fruit and gooseberries plus suggestions of honeysuckle, coriander seed and chalk dust. Medium-bodied, the palate is completely filled with tropical and citrus flavors plus a racy backbone, finishing long with a touch of chalkiness. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Complex aroma that is herbal, spicy and with a lovely nose that is so typically Bordeaux Blanc. Cedary but with lemon and grapefruit freshness too. Slight grip, moderate concentration, more interesting aromatically than for its intensity. Not very long but super-fresh. 16.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Bottled in May, the 2018 Blanc de Lynch Bages was matured for six months in 50% new oak, the Sauvignon Blanc fermented in tank. This has more vigor and attack on the nose compared to the 2017, delivering citrus fruit, Granny Smith apples and fresh pear aromas. The saline palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and a pretty, fresh malic finish. I prefer this to the 2017. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)
