95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This concentrated, dense wine follows the estate’s hallmark richness. Solid and generous, it has both weight and layers of fresh acidity. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Utterly gorgeous freshness and zip, with intensity of flavour. It has a little more Sémillon than usual, due to frost affect the Sauvignon Blanc, which seems to mean the aromatics of the Muscadelle are a little more prominent than a classic Lynch Bages Blanc, adding a white flower honeysuckle lift. It is beautiful and works within the cascade of flavours, although I miss their more classic blend - they probably do too, to be fair. Already bottled. 45% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Blanc de Lynch Bages, already bottled, is a blend of 41% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 19% Muscadelle. It leaps from the glass with exuberant notes of white peaches, pink grapefruit and passion fruit plus hints of dried herbs, cedar and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, elegantly played and wonderfully refreshing in the mouth, it has a quiet intensity that grows into a vibrant expression on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Lynch-Bages Blanc is gorgeous. It is also quite unique, as the blend includes more Sémillon than normal as a result of frost damage to some of the Sauvignon Blanc. I admit I am not usually a fan of the Blanc here, but the 2017 is terrific. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Peach, white ginger, jasmine and quince notes mingle in this juicy, offbeat white. Streaks of honeysuckle and orange blossom show on the finish. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
