2020 Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539509 95-96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Intense graphite and violet character with lead pencil. It’s full and firm with chewy and balanced tannins. Iodine coming through. So intense. Super second wine. Like the grand vin of Lynch from the 1980s. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Offering classic Pauillac notes of blackcurrants, scorched earth, violets, and lead pencil, the 2020 Echo De Lynch Bages is a big, rich, nicely concentrated wine that shows the fresh yet powerful style of the vintage beautifully. It's a terrific second wine, yet one that's going to benefit from a few years of bottle age. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A serious Echo, one that has walls and depths to its tannins, and will take time to open up. Black pepper, cassis, cassis bud and liquorice, I would give this four or five years before opening. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Echo de Lynch-Bages is gentle and harmonious on the nose, not powerful but quite seductive thanks to its pure red currant and wild strawberry fruit; boysenberry jam emerges with time (meaning a couple of hours). The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, grippier than the nose suggests. An underlying saline element lends freshness on a firm finish that does not outstay its welcome, but encourages another sip. This is a fine Deuxième Vin. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

K&L Notes

90-92 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2020 Echo de Lynch Bages is fabulous. A compelling second wine, Echo offers all the aromatic sensuality, red fruit and silkiness of the Grand Vin, but in an open-knit style that can be enjoyed upon release. All the elements are so impeccably balanced. Everything about the 2020 speaks to class and refinement." (6/2021)

Some vanilla oak on the nose mixed with black raspberry aromas. Toasty. Some tannins at the back end. A bit rustic.
Drink from 2022 to 2030
