2012 Echo De Lynch Bages 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 86 points
Drink by: 2015 - 2022
The second wine of Lynch-Bages, the 2012 Echo is a light to medium-bodied, slightly one-dimensional style of wine with ripe blackcurrant and cherry fruit. It does not offer much depth or body, and its soft, easygoing finish borders on innocuous, but it is pleasant.
"Château 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."
