2020 Blanc de Lynch-Bages, Bordeaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539473 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Really fresh and vivid with sliced grapefruit, lemon, green apple and white peach. Apricot, too. Medium to full body with phenolic texture and a long, vivid finish. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Less of the citrus flavours of recent vintages and more apricot and nectarine stone fruits, taking its cue from Sémillon and Muscadelle. Relaxed and effortless while still maintaining both lift and tension, with a saline wet stone lick on the finish. I tasted the 2019 on the same day, as it had just been bottled, and the 2020 is less of a classic Lynch Bages Blanc, but still utterly delicious, with clear weight and impression through the mid palate. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Blanc de Lynch Bages is terrific. I am not always a fan of the Blanc, as I often find it too tropical, but the 2020 has more than enough verve and overall freshness to balance things out. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Sémillon and 10% Muscadelle, the 2020 Blanc de Lynch-Bages springs from the glass with vivacious notes of white peaches, fresh pineapple and pink grapefruit, plus touches of honeysuckle and mandarin peel. The medium-bodied palate is equally intense, featuring just enough acidity and bright, zesty sparks, finishing pleasantly savory. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

This wine has improved dramatically over the last twenty years. This 2020 may be the best wine they have made to date. Perfumy, fruity nose due to a bit of Muscadelle-citric undertones. Very lemony on the palate-clean and refreshing wine-so lively and delicious, you will want to drink the whole bottle. Long and lovely. First tasted May 12th from 1 week old sample.
Drink from 2022 to 2029
