Tasting Notes

The second wine of Lynch-Bages, the 2012 Echo is a light to medium-bodied, slightly one-dimensional style of wine with ripe blackcurrant and cherry fruit. It does not offer much depth or body, and its soft, easygoing finish borders on innocuous, but it is pleasant. It should be drunk over the next 5-7 years. Drink: 2015-2022.

Score: 86Robert Parker, RobertParker.com (218), April 2015

Tasted en primeur at the château. A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the Echo has a well-defined, graphite infused bouquet that is tightly wound at the moment. The palate is nicely defined and citric fresh although there is a little hardness towards the finish. Tasted April 2013.

Score: 85/87Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2013

A soft, juicy red, the 2012 Echo de Lynch-Bages is a pretty wine to drink over the next handful of years, while the fruit remains vibrant. Sweet red plum, dried flowers and menthol open nicely, with a hint of over-ripe fruit that lingers on the finish. The blend is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Drink 2016-2024.

Score: 88Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2016

This is the new name for the second wine of Chateau Lynch Bages with a new modern label. It was formerly known as Haut Bages Averous. 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc - aged in last year's Lynch Bages barrels. Good black colour and impressive blueberry and blackcurrant fruit. Fine and long and very impressive for a second wine.

Score: 15.5Farr Vintners, March 2013

Cassis dominates the nose rich and ripe and the palate has a good depth of sweet fruit. Towards the back it feels firmer with black cherry and very definite tannins. 2018-30.
