Echo De Lynch-Bages – Pauillac 2017

RM308.0

Chateau Haut-Bages Averous was the name of the former Pauillac estate acquired by Andre Cazes and was the domaine’s second wine from 1976 onwards. It was renamed Echo de Lynch-Bages as of the 2008 vintage in order to affirm its relationship with the Grand Cru Classe. Its name Echo refers to the nymph from Greek mythology who was deprived of speech by Hera as a punishment for distracting her when Zeus wished to consort with beautiful mortals. As such, although Echo de Lynch-Bages is not the first to speak, it shares the first wine’s elegance and character.

Like its big brother, Echo de Lynch-Bages displays the characteristic taste, aromas and length of Pauillac wines. As an echo of the first wine, it receives the same care and attention from the vine to the cellars. It is the result of a selection of Lynch-Bages’ youngest vines and specific plots which represent between 25 to 40% of the harvest depending on the vintage. Echo de Lynch-Bages is round, soft and seductive in its youth with outstanding potential for bottle age.

Aged in one-year-old barrels for 12 months, this showcases a brilliant colour and lovely purplish-blue garnet hues. Attractive savoury aromas on the nose, transpose into a rich and elegant palate of fresh red fruits (redcurrant and raspberry). Fine tannins combine with refreshing acidity to provide a very nice long finish. Drink now or hold.

Description

Chateau Lynch-Bages takes its name from Thomas Lynch, a Bordeaux merchant of Irish heritage who owned the property from 1749 to 1824. Lynch established an early tradition of quality which resulted in the chateau being listed as a fifth growth in the 1855 Classification. In the mid-20th century the reputation of Lynch-Bages skyrocketed following a series of excellent vintages from 1945 onwards, proving particularly popular with British drinkers and collectors.

The chateau’s 90 hectares of vineyards are set around the village of Bages in the south-west of the town of Pauillac and are planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Their vines have an average age of 30 years with some as old as 60 years and are planted on gravel and limestone soils which help to produce intense, muscular wines with exceptional ageability.
Today the chateau is one of the Medoc’s best known producers, crafting a firm, well-structured grand vin which can age for decades. In the words of famed wine critic Oz Clarke: “Lynch Bages is impressive at five years, beautiful at ten years and irresistible at twenty.” The approachability of Lynch-Bages when young combined with its enchanting bouquet when mature is one of the key reasons for the grand vin’s global success in recent years.
