Aromas of currants and fresh herbs. Medium to full body, a soft and juicy texture and a long finish. Juicy yet tight. Excellent second wine. Better in 2020.
The 2014 Echo de Lynch-Bages is dense, pliant and quite deep for a second wine. Élevage has softened some of the rough edges that the wine showed in its youth. Today, I am surprised by how primary and dense it is. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years. There is little in the way of aromatic or flavor development at this stage, and the wine feels very closed. The blend is 73 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 27 % Merlot, the highest %age of Cabernet since 2001. (AG)
Ripe and racy, with a lovely core of cassis, plum and blackberry confiture notes, laced with graphite details. Vivid from start to finish, delivering a sense of polish that makes it approachable already, though there's no rush. Best from 2018 through 2026. (JM)
