Chateau Lynch-Bages Echo de Lynch Bages 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
Tasting notes: Deep colour with red fruit aromas and elegant overtones of well-integrated oak. Good structure with ripe characterful tannin. The Cabernet in this vintage of Echo have a texture and structure close to that of the Grand Vin. This wine is both smooth and powerful.
Vintage: ""Here comes the sun""
A vintage that was made from gentle, progressive weather, with gradual concentration coming from perfect summer ripening, followed, continuously and without interruption, by further concentration from a perfect autumn. The year went through the gears seamlessly with no jolts.
This is on the muscular side, with a taut frame of chalky minerality around a slightly chunky core of red and black currant paste flavors. Lots of charcoal and warm cast iron notes score the finish, lending additional texture and length to the overall impression. A violet hint flows through to give this a hint of charm. Best from 2022 through 2035.
