The 2018 Chateau Lynch Bages is the second wine of Lynch Bages and is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc brought up all in once-used barrels. Cassis, graphite, lead pencil, and graphite notes all emerge from this deep, shockingly concentrated wine that has full-bodied richness, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish.
The stats on this second wine are telling, and it’s 13.9% alcohol. It’s one serious, blockbuster-styled second wine that shows how successful some of the second wines in the vintage are.
The 2018 Chateau Lynch Bages is a rich, sensual and inviting second wine. Dark cherry, pomegranate, mint, blood orange and spice infuse this racy, sumptuous second wine from Lynch Bages. Plush fruit and soft, silky contours add to the wine’s immediacy and sheer appeal.
Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc and without any new oak, the very deep purple-black colored 2018 Echo de Lynch Bages rolls seductively out of the glass with fragrant notes of candied violets, rose hip tea and fragrant soil over a core of crushed blackberries, warm blackcurrants and kirsch plus wafts of chocolate mint and crushed rocks.
Full, rich, wonderfully concentrated and well structured, it has a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long.
It has a bright, vivid color.
A nose expressing aromas of dark berries mixed with peppery notes.
It has a refreshing attack, with a grain of tannin that is still slightly coarse but which the barrels will polish promising a beautifully harmonious wine after aging.
