RATINGS

92Vinous / IWC

...very attractive bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit tinged with damp loam and undergrowth aromas, all well defined and adding welcome floral scents...palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins. Hints of graphite and bell pepper infuse the ample black fruit. There is superb weight and body towards the finish.

91Wine Spectator

...solid core of cassis, raspberry and blackberry coulis notes, framed by a rather polished structure and lined with lightly toasted apple wood and anise notes. Offers good definition, with a violet note chiming in on the finish.

90-91James Suckling

Brilliant fruit, with super clean and intense aromas of fruit and flowers. Full body, with super refined tannins.

17Jancis Robinson

Delicate aroma of spice and black fruits with a touch of cigar box. Smells invitingly stony/mineral too...well balanced and elegant.

PRODUCER

Château Lynch-Bages (Second Label)

Echo de Lynch-Bages is the second wine of Chateau Lynch-Bages. From 1976 to 2008 the wine was called Chateau Haut-Bages Averous. As of 2008, however, the wine Chateau Haut-Bages Averous changed to Echo do Lynch-Bages. Echo is made from the property’s younger vines and has a slightly higher proportion of Merlot and Cabernet Franc than the flagship wine.

REGION

France, Bordeaux, Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most famous appellation, thanks to the fact that it is home to three of the region’s fabled first-growth châteaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Latour. Perched on the left bank of the Gironde River north of the city of Bordeaux, Pauillac is centered around the commune of Pauillac and includes about 3,000 acres of vineyards. The Bordeaux classification of 1855 named 18 classified growths, including the three above mentioned First Growths. Cabernet Sauvignon is the principal grape grown, followed by Merlot. The soil is mostly sandy gravel mixed with marl and iron. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “the textbook Pauillac would tend to have a rich, full-bodied texture, a distinctive bouquet of black currants, licorice and cedary scents, and excellent aging potential.”
