2016 Echo de Lynch-Bages (Pauillac)

Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2016 Echo de Lynch Bages is an irresistibly beautiful, racy Pauillac. Sweet floral and spice overtones add brilliant top notes to a core of bright red cherry and plum fruit. Generous, supple and inviting, with silky tannins, the 2016 is going to be ready to deliver considerable pleasure upon release. Today, it is beautiful and alluring. 92 points

Neal Martin

The 2016 Echo de Lynch Bages is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, representing about one-third of the total production. It has a clean and precise bouquet, very polished and developing crushed violet scents with time. The palate is medium-bodied with quite crunchy, firm tannin on the entry. Quite saline in the mouth, masculine and grippy with just a little toughness on the finish that should mellow by the time of bottling. Best give this Deuxième Vin a couple of years in bottle if you can. 89-91 points

Jane Anson

Echo de Lynch-Bages this year accounts for 25% of overall production, and even here we are at a tannin index of aromatic, leafy and precise with grippy but very polished tannins, cassis and black cherry flavours and an undertone of graphite. Drink 2024-30. 93 points

Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Echo de Lynch Bages offers lovely intensity in its bold, forward fruit. Sweet dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol infuse this deep, racy Pauillac. Sumptuous and resonant on the palate, the 2016 will drink nicely right out of the gate. Today, the primary fruit is super-expressive. 89-92 points
