    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Echo de Lynch Bages, Pauillac, 2010

    Echo represents just 26% of the crop, produced from 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc. Superb colour. The bouquet offers notes of cool cassis fruit and genuine Pauillac character. On the palate there is real intensity and no shortage of flavour: juicy, engaging red berries, hedgerow fruit, sloes and blackcurrants. This is a taut, distinguished second wine. Very good indeed!

    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    A serious Echo that gives a good entry into the main wine. There are a ton of tannins here, and it has the inky, slate, crushed rock character of Pauillac. Carefully-extracted cassis and bilberry fruit, this is measured, one to look out for, needs a few years to relax. 3.69ph, 10% new oak.

    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Echo de Lynch-Bages is deep garnet-purple in color. It tumbles from the glass with open-knit scents of plum preserves, mince pie, and Indian spices, with hints of menthol, rose oil, and dusty soil. The medium-bodied palate delivers a firm, chewy texture and oodles of freshness to support the baked berries and exotic spice layers, finishing long. pH 3.69, TPI 91.

    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2022 Echo de Lynch Bages, aged for 14 months in one-year-old oak, has a slightly timid nose at first. Very pure blueberry and cassis fruit emerge with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, fine acidity, quite compact on the mid-palate with a touch of pencil lead toward the finish. This is a fine, quite sturdy Deuxieme Vin that will need 4-5 years.

    Château Lynch Bages

    Jean-Charles Cazes became the tenant at Lynch Bages in 1934, later purchasing the estate and starting a program of investment, restoring the Chateau and undertaking much work in the vineyards. The estate has since prospered, becoming recognised globally, but being particularly popular in the UK market. The estate is now run by Jean-Charles’ great grandson, Jean-Charles.

    There are three principle plots, one between the village of Bages and the outskirts of Pauillac, one to the west of Bages towards Grand Puy Lacoste, and the final plot lies at the south of the commune close to St Julien. In all there are approximately 100 hectares under vine on classic Gunzian gravel over marl, chalk and sand. The vineyards are planted with 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Recent vintages have seen the estate returning to its very best form, not that they have ever really suffered any loss of form. This 5th growth estate has always been an over-performer, but recent efforts would suggest that the wines are on a par with the ‘Super Seconds’.

    It is also worth mentioning their excellent second wine, Echo de Lynch Bages. This was previously called Haut Bages Averous. Since the 2008 vintage, Echo along with the excellent Ormes des Pez offers drinkers the Lynch Bages style at a fraction of the cost.
