Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

The 2019 Echo De Lynch-Bages is the second wine of Château Lynch-Bages and it's beautifully done, with a more floral, perfumed, pretty style compared to the Grand Vin, yet it still brings plenty of structure. Red and black currants, sappy flowers, tobacco leaf, and gravelly earth all define the bouquet, and it's medium-bodied, has integrated acidity, gorgeous tannins, and a great finish. It's beautifully balanced and already accessible, yet will nevertheless benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age. - Jeb Dunnuck
Smooth tannins although plenty of them with chewy character and walls to climb. What a great 2nd wine, with pulses of minerality that keep the momentum from beginning to end, impressive depth through the mid palate, juicy on the finish, well judged mix of blackcurrant fruit, smoked spice and fresh acidites. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
Lifted floral aromas, smells pretty and inviting, with a sweet note to the black fruit. Tannins are a little present, they're not dry or austere, more on the smooth and chalky side but are just covering the fruit right now, although the blackcurrant and plum notes come back through. Chewy, ripe, fresh. This is lovely if just a bit shy at the moment. Drinking Window 2023 - 2030 - GH, Decanter
The 2019 Echo de Lynch-Bages, matured in one-year-old barrels for 12 months, has a crisp blackberry, briar and cedar bouquet with touches of mint, quite vibrant and lively. The medium-bodied palate offers succulent tannins and mulberry and black plum flavors intermingling with black truffle and white pepper. Maybe just a little abrupt on the finish at the moment, but that will fill out in time.
