Tasting Note:

Produced from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the 2020 Echo possesses a solid backbone of red fruit, very fresh and intense, lots of leafy cassis and plenty of energy; it should be a good early drinking, affordable Pauillac.

"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. 3.8pH. Yields were down to around 22hl/ha. First harvest in the new gravity-fed cellars. Drink 2025 - 2040". 92/100 - Jane Anson, Decanter.com

"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. Drink from 2024 to 2035". 90-92/100 - Neal Martin, 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. Drink from 2025 to 2032". 90-92/100 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
