2014 Château Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

With more Cabernet than ever in the blend – 73% - this is a muscular and dense Echo de Lynch Bages, a style that has worked really well. Really well balanced, with excellent cigar box spice and pure dark fruit. Really well put together, at this price this is a real bargain.

TASTING NOTES

The Echo de Lynch Bages 2014 is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot. It is just missing a little presence on the nose at the moment with light blackcurrant pastille developing in the glass. The palate has a strong salty tang on the entry plus a dash of spice, with a crisp, lively finish that partly compensates for the aromatics.
